## S3 method for class 'uncertainty'
plot(x, y = NULL, xlab = parse(text = x$measurand_label), 
main = "", ylab = "Probability density", from = x$mean - 4 * x$u, to = x$mean + 4 * x$u, 
lwd = 2, add = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

x

An uncertainty object

y

not used, exists only for compatibility with the S3 generic function.

xlab

string or expression, label for the x-axis.

main

string or expression, label for the plot.

ylab

string or expression, label for the y-axis.

from

numeric, lower value of the x-axis to display.

to

numeric, upper valur of the x-axis to display.

lwd

numeric, line width.

add

logic, decides to add the curve into an existing plot or to create a new plot.

...

additional parameters.

Details
