  \item{x, y}{ For \code{rootogram}, \code{x} is the object on which
    method dispatch is carried out.  For the \code{"formula"} method,
    \code{x} is a formula describing the form of conditioning plot.  The
    formula can be either of the form \code{~x} or of the form
    \code{y~x}.  In the first case, \code{x} is assumed to be a vector
    of raw observations, and an observed frequency distribution is
    computed from it.  In the second case, \code{x} is assumed to be
    unique values and \code{y} the corresponding frequencies.  In either
    case, further conditioning variables are allowed.

    A similar interpretation holds for \code{x} and \code{y} in
    \code{prepanel.rootogram} and \code{panel.rootogram}.

    Note that the data are assumed to arise from a discrete distribution
    with some probability mass function.  See details below.

  \item{data}{ For the \code{"formula"} method, a data frame containing
    values for any variables in the formula, as well as those in
    \code{groups} and \code{subset} if applicable (\code{groups} is
    currently ignored by the default panel function).  By default the
    environment where the function was called from is used.  }

  \item{dfun}{ a probability mass function, to be evaluated at unique x
    values }

  \item{prepanel, panel}{ panel and prepanel function used to create the
    display.  }

  \item{ylab}{ the y-axis label; typically a character string or an
    expression. }

  \item{col, lty, lwd, alpha}{ graphical parameters }
  \item{transformation}{ a vectorized function.  Relative frequencies
    (observed) and theoretical probabilities (\code{dfun}) are
    transformed by this function before being plotted. }

  \item{hang}{logical, whether lines representing observed relative
    freuqncies should \dQuote{hang} from the curve representing the
    theoretical probabilities. }

  \item{probability}{ A logical flag, controlling whether the y-values
    are to be standardized to be probabilities by dividing by their sum.

  \item{type}{ A character vector consisting of one or both of
    \code{"p"} and \code{"l"}. If \code{"p"} is included, the evaluated
    values of \code{dfun} will be denoted by points, and if \code{"l"}
    is included, they will be joined by lines. }

  \item{pch}{ The plotting character to be used for the \code{"p"}
    type. }
  \item{\dots}{ extra arguments, passed on as appropriate.  Standard
    lattice arguments as well as arguments to \code{panel.rootogram}
    can be supplied directly in the high level \code{rootogram} call.


  This function implements Tukey's hanging rootograms.  As implemented,
  \code{rootogram} assumes that the data arise from a discrete
  distribution (either supplied in raw form, when \code{y} is
  unspecified, or in terms of the frequency distribution) with some
  unknown probability mass function (p.m.f.).  The purpose of the plot
  is to check whether the supplied theoretical p.m.f. \code{dfun} is a
  reasonable fit for the data.

  It is reasonable to consider rootograms for continuous data by
  discretizing it (similar to a histogram), but this must be done by the
  user before calling \code{rootogram}.  An example is given below.

  Also consider the \code{rootogram} function in the \code{vcd} package,
  especially if the number of unique values is small.



  \code{rootogram} produces an object of class \code{"trellis"}.  The
  \code{update} method can be used to update components of the object and
  the \code{print} method (usually called by default) will plot it on an
  appropriate plotting device.

x <- rpois(1000, lambda = 50)

p <- rootogram(~x, dfun = function(x) dpois(x, lambda = 50))

                dx ="c", lapply(tmp, "[[", "dx")),
                dy ="c", lapply(tmp, "[[", "dy")))
       panel = function(x, ...) {
                           dfun = function(x)
                           dpois(x, lambda = lambdav[panel.number()]))
           grid::grid.text(bquote(Poisson(lambda == .(foo)),
                                  where = list(foo = lambdav[panel.number()])),
                           y = 0.15,
                           gp = grid::gpar(cex = 1.5))
       xlab = "",
       sub = "Random sample from Poisson(50)")

## Example using continuous data

xnorm <- rnorm(1000)

## 'discretize' by binning and replacing data by bin midpoints

h <- hist(xnorm, plot = FALSE)

## Option 1: Assume bin probabilities proportional to dnorm()

norm.factor <- sum(dnorm(h$mids, mean(xnorm), sd(xnorm)))

rootogram(counts ~ mids, data = h,
          dfun = function(x) {
              dnorm(x, mean(xnorm), sd(xnorm)) / norm.factor

## Option 2: Compute probabilities explicitly using pnorm()

pdisc <- diff(pnorm(h$breaks, mean = mean(xnorm), sd = sd(xnorm)))
pdisc <- pdisc / sum(pdisc)

rootogram(counts ~ mids, data = h,
          dfun = function(x) {
              f <- factor(x, levels = h$mids)
