[R] Showing limits on line graphs

I had considered using arrows or line segments to write my own function, but I though that someone might have done it before me.  Thanks to all for their rapid response.  The graphics I need can be generated using plotmeans in the gregmisc package.

It's a fairly common type of graphic, but in looking through examples I have been able to find, I have found no function for such a graph.

You can construct these yourself using arrows(angle=90).  There are
functions which package this; one I can think of right now is plotCI,
in the gregmisc package.
