Hi Giovanni,
I think the ggplot2 package might help you out here. Do you want
something like this?


p <- ggplot(mtcars, aes(x=cyl, y=mpg))

p + stat_summary(fun.data = "mean_cl_boot", colour = "red", geom =
"errorbar") +  stat_summary(fun.data = "mean_cl_normal", colour =
"blue", geom = "errorbar")


See http://had.co.nz/ggplot2/stat_summary.html for details.
