<h2>Plot segments using the Trellis framework</h2>


<p> This function can be used to systematically draw segments
using a formula interface to produce Trellis displays using the
lattice package.  Segments can be drawn either as lines or bars, and
can be color coded by the value of a covariate, with a suitable


segplot(x, data, ...)

## S3 method for class 'formula':
segplot(x, data,
        level = NULL, centers = NULL,
        prepanel = prepanel.segplot,
        panel = panel.segplot,
        xlab = NULL, ylab = NULL,
        horizontal = TRUE,
        at, cuts = 30, colorkey = !is.null(level))



<table summary="R argblock">
<tr valign="top"><td><code>x</code></td>
 Argument on which argument dispatch is carried out.  For the
<code>"formula"</code> method, a formula of the form <code>y ~ x1 + x2</code>
(with further conditioning variables appended if necessary).  The
terms in the formula must all be vectors of the same length.  Each
element causes a line segment or rectangle to be drawn, with the
vertical location determined by <code>y</code> and horizontal endpoints
determined by <code>x1</code> and <code>x2</code>.  </td></tr>
<tr valign="top"><td><code>data</code></td>
 An optional data frame, list or environment where
variables in the formula, as well as <code>level</code>, will be
<tr valign="top"><td><code>level</code></td>
 An optional covariate that determines color coding of
the segments</td></tr>
<tr valign="top"><td><code>centers</code></td>
 optional vector of &lsquo;centers&rsquo; of the segments.
If specified, points will be plotted at these <code>y</code>-locations.  </td></tr>
<tr valign="top"><td><code>prepanel</code></td>
 function determining range of the data rectangle from
data to be used in a panel. </td></tr>
<tr valign="top"><td><code>panel</code></td>
 function to render the graphic given the data.  This is
the function that actually implements the display.  </td></tr>
<tr valign="top"><td><code>xlab, ylab</code></td>
 Labels for the axes.  By default both are
missing. </td></tr>
<tr valign="top"><td><code>horizontal</code></td>
 logical, whether the segments are to be drawn
horizontally (the default) or vertically.  This essentially swaps
the role of the x- and y-axes in each panel. </td></tr>
<tr valign="top"><td><code>...</code></td>
 further arguments.  Arguments to <code>levelplot</code> as
well as to the default panel function <code>panel.segplot</code>
can be supplied directly to <code>segplot</code>. </td></tr>
<tr valign="top"><td><code>colorkey</code></td>
 logical indicating whether a legend showing
association of segment colors to values of <code>level</code> should be
shown, or a list to control details of such a color key.  See
details below. </td></tr>
<tr valign="top"><td><code>at, cuts</code></td>
 <code>at</code> specifies the values of <code>level</code> where
the color code changes.  If <code>at</code> is missing, it defaults to
<code>cuts</code> equispaced locations spanning the range of <code>levels</code>


The <code>levelplot</code> function from the lattice package is used to
internally to implement this function.  In particular, the colorkey
mechanism is used as it is, and documentation for
<code>levelplot</code> should be consulted to learn how to
fine tune it.


An object of class <code>"trellis"</code>. The
<code>update</code> method can be used to
update components of the object and the
<code>print</code> method (usually called by
default) will plot it on an appropriate plotting device.


<p> Currently only horizontal segments are supported.  Vertical
segments can be obtained by modifying the prepanel and panel functions
suitably. </p>
