Defines functions errorbars

Documented in errorbars

#' Errorbars to be used with base plotting
#'
#'@param x x value
#'@param Mean mean value or y alternative
#'@param SE standard error
#'@param col color of bars
#'@param lty Line type The line type. Line types can either be specified as an integer (0=blank, 1=solid (default), 2=dashed, 3=dotted, 4=dotdash, 5=longdash, 6=twodash) or as one of the character strings "blank", "solid", "dashed", "dotted", "dotdash", "longdash", or "twodash", where "blank" uses ‘invisible lines’ (i.e., does not draw them).
#'@param length length of the edges of the error bar head (in inches).
#'@param lwd line width
#'@keywords error
#'@export
#'@return draws lines in the form of error bars
#'@importFrom graphics arrows
#'@note  see arrows() function
