Hi,
I've been trying to do the following simple thing: given a data.frame,
> library(reshape)
> library(ggplot2)
>
> df <- data.frame(x=c(1:10),y=sin(1:10),z=cos(1:10))
> dfm<-melt(df, id=c("x"), measured=c("y","z"))
i want to plot y and z against x, and add vertical errorbars to the
points corresponding to the standard deviation of y and z respectively.
I tried the following, inspired by some previous post in the list,
> se <- function(x) sd(x)/sqrt(length(x))
> means <- cast(dfm, variable~., function(x) c(se = se(x)))
>
> qplot(value,x, data=means, colour=variable, min = value - se, max =
> value + se, geom=c("point","errorbar"))
but this fails, as I obviously don't get the philosophy behind the
"cast" function.
Any advice welcome!
Thanks,
baptiste
