Add lines to an existing jointdata plot


Add lines to an existing plot of an object of class jointdata, for a longitudinal variable. It is possible to plot all the subjects in the data set, or just a selected subset. See subset.jointdata.


## S3 method for class 'jointdata'
lines(x, Y.col, ...)



object of class jointdata.


column number, or column name, of longitudinal variable to be plotted. Defaults to Y.col = NA, plotting all longitudinal variables.


other graphical arguments; see plot.
