Defines functions plotDensity

Documented in plotDensity

#' Function to create a density plot
#' 
#' Simple density plot. Adapted from the aroma.affymetrix package (www.aroma-project.org)
#' 
#' @param x Matrix with numeric values.  
#' @param xlim The limits for the x axis.
#' @param ylim The limits for the y axis.
#' @param col Vector with colors corresponding to the columns of the matrix.
#' @param lty The line type (see \code{\link[graphics:par]{graphics}}). 
#' @param lwd The line width, a positive number, defaulting to 1 
#' (see \code{\link[graphics:par]{graphics}}).
#' @param add If FALSE (the default) then a new plot is produced. 
#' If TRUE, density lines are added to the open graphics device.
#' @param xlab The labeling of the x axis.
#' @param ylab The labeling of the y axis.
#' @param log Logical values which states if the log2 should be taken from the data.
#' @param ... Further arguments of the plot function
#' ' @return A plot written to the graphics device.
