The errbar function in the Hmisc library for R/S+ is not as comprehensive as the S+ error.bar function but it does most of what's needed (for vertical bars anyway). It was originally written by Geyer in 1991. There is another version of it ('error') which is a function internal to xYplot when lattice/grid is in effect. -Frank Harrell
