I met the problem recently. It's quite simple actually. I have "file" which
contains 3 columns: lag, ccc, and ci. The last one is 1.96*se(ccc), then
the following does the trick:

	dat <- read.table("file")
	lag <- dat$V1
	ccc <- dat$V2
	ci <- dat$V3
	plot(lag, ccc)
	segments(lag, ccc+ci, lag, ccc-ci)

I also added this to draw small horizontal bars at the ends of the vertical

	segments(lag-.05, ccc-ci, lag+.05, ccc-ci)
	segments(lag-.05, ccc+ci, lag+.05, ccc+ci)
