[R] Sheather Jones Plug-In Bandwidth

What is 'hcj'?  Did you perhaps mean hsj()?

The Sheather-Jones methods (or at least one of them) are implemented in 
packages stats (from MASS), KernSmooth and sm, and all are for Normal 
kernels.  There is a concept of `equivalent' bandwidth for different 
kernels discussed in all good books on the subject of kernel density 
estimation, and this will enable you to convert the bandwidth to other 
kernels: see the help page for density (which shows the factor is very 
close to one for the triangular kernel).

convert the bandwidth obtained by the default( I assume that the  default
is standard normal) in hcj(x,...) to other kernels.
