## @deftypefn {Function File} {} errorbar (@var{args})
## This function produces two-dimensional plots with errorbars. Many
## different combinations of arguments are possible.  The simplest form is
##
## @example
## errorbar (@var{y}, @var{ey})
## @end example
##
## @noindent
## where the first argument is taken as the set of @var{y} coordinates
## and the second argument @var{ey} is taken as the errors of the
## @var{y} values. @var{x} coordinates are taken to be the indices
## of the elements, starting with 1.
##
## If more than two arguments are given, they are interpreted as
##
## @example
## errorbar (@var{x}, @var{y}, ..., @var{fmt} ...)
## @end example
##
## @noindent
## where after @var{x} and @var{y} there can be up to four error
## parameters such as @var{ey}, @var{ex}, @var{ly}, @var{uy} etc.,
## depending on the plot type. Any number of argument sets may appear,
## as long as they are separated with a format string @var{fmt}.
##
## If @var{y} is a matrix, @var{x} and error parameters must also be matrices
## having same dimensions. The columns of @var{y} are plotted versus the
## corresponding columns of @var{x} and errorbars are drawn from
## the corresponding columns of error parameters.
##
## If @var{fmt} is missing, yerrorbars ("~") plot style
## is assumed.
## If the @var{fmt} argument is supplied, it is interpreted as in
## normal plots (See __pltopt__). In addition the following
## plot styles are supported by errorbar:
##
## @table @samp
## @item ~
## Set yerrorbars plot style (default).
##
## @item >
## Set xerrorbars plot style.
##
## @item ~>
## Set xyerrorbars plot style.
##
## @end table
##
## Examples:
##
## @example
## errorbar(@var{x}, @var{y}, @var{ex}, ">")
## @end example
##
## xerrorbar plot of @var{y} versus @var{x} with @var{x} errorbars drawn from
## @var{x}-@var{ex} to @var{x}+@var{ex}.
##
## @example
## errorbar(@var{x}, @var{y1}, @var{ey}, "~", @var{x}, @var{y2}, @var{ly}, @var{uy})
## @end example
##
## Two yerrorbar plots with @var{y1} and @var{y2} versus @var{x}.
## Errorbars for @var{y1} are drawn from @var{y1}-@var{ey} to
## @var{y1}+@var{ey}, errorbars for @var{y2} from @var{y2}-@var{ly} to
## @var{y2}+@var{uy}.
##
## @example
## errorbar(@var{x}, @var{y}, @var{lx}, @var{ux}, @var{ly}, @var{uy}, "~>")
## @end example
##
## xyerrorbar plot of @var{y} versus @var{x} where @var{x} errorbars
## are drawn from @var{x}-@var{lx} to @var{x}+@var{ux} and @var{y} errorbars
## from @var{y}-@var{ly} to @var{y}+@var{uy}.
