Defines functions resampleHist

Documented in resampleHist

#' Plot the resampling distribution of the model statistics
#' 
#' Create a lattice histogram or densityplot from the resampled outcomes from a
#' \code{train} object.
#' 
#' All the metrics from the object are plotted, but only for the final model.
#' For more comprehensive plots functions, see \code{\link{histogram.train}},
#' \code{\link{densityplot.train}}, \code{\link{xyplot.train}},
#' \code{\link{stripplot.train}}.
#' 
#' For the plot to be made, the \code{returnResamp} argument in
#' \code{\link{trainControl}} should be either "final" or "all".
#' 
#' @param object an object resulting form a call to \code{\link{train}}
#' @param type a character string. Either "hist" or "density"
#' @param \dots options to pass to histogram or densityplot
#' @return a object of class \code{trellis}
