# function to plot a stability path

### Description

Given a desired family-wise error rate (FWER) and a stability path calculated with `stability.path`

the function selects an stable set of features and plots the stability path and the corresponding regularization path.

### Usage

1 2 3 |

### Arguments

`x` |
an object of class "stabpath" as returned by the function |

`error` |
the desired type I error level w.r.t. to the chosen type I error rate. |

`type` |
The type I error rate used for controlling the number falsely selected variables. If |

`pi_thr` |
the threshold used for the stability selection, should be in the range of 0.5 > pi_thr < 1. |

`xvar` |
the variable used for the xaxis, e.g. for "lambda" the selection probabilities are plotted along the log of the penalization parameters, for "norm" along the L1-norm and for "dev" along the fraction of explained deviance. |

`col.all` |
the color used for the variables that are not in the estimated stable set |

`col.sel` |
the color used for the variables in the estimated stable set |

`...` |
further arguments that are passed to matplot |

### Value

a list of four objects

`stable` |
a vector giving the positions of the estimated stable variables |

`lambda` |
the penalization parameter used for the stability selection |

`lpos` |
the position of the penalization parameter in the regularization path |

`error` |
the desired type I error level w.r.t. to the chosen type I error rate |

`type` |
the type I error rate |
