box¶
Purpose¶
Graphs data using the box graph percentile method.
Note
This function uses the deprecated PQG graphics. Use plotBox()
instead.
Library¶
pgraph
Format¶

box
(grp, y)¶ Parameters:  grp (1xM vector) – This contains the group numbers corresponding to each column of y data.
If scalar 0, a sequence from 1 to
cols(y)
will be generated automatically for the xaxis.  y (NxM matrix) – Each column represents the set of y values for an individual percentiles box symbol.
 grp (1xM vector) – This contains the group numbers corresponding to each column of y data.
If scalar 0, a sequence from 1 to
Global Input¶

\_pboxctl
5x1 vector, controls box style, width, and color.
[1] box width between 0 and 1. If zero, the box plot is drawn as two vertical lines representing the quartile ranges with a filled circle representing the 50th percentile. [2] box color. If this is set to 0, the colors may be individually controlled using the global variable _pcolor
.[3] Min/max style for the box symbol. One of the following
1: Minimum and maximum taken from the actual limits of the data. Elements 4 and 5 are ignored.
2: Statistical standard with the minimum and maximum calculated according to interquartile range as follows:
 intqrange = 75th  25th
 min = 25th  1.5 intqrange
 max = 75th + 1.5 intqrange
 Elements 4 and 5 are ignored.
3: Minimum and maximum percentiles taken from elements 4 and 5.
[4] Minimum percentile value (0100) if _pboxctl[3] = 3. [5] Maximum percentile value (0100) if _pboxctl[3] = 3.

\_plctrl
1xM vector or scalar as follows:
0 Plot boxes only, no symbols. 1 Plot boxes and plot symbols which lie outside the min and max box values. 2 Plot boxes and all symbols. 1 Plot symbols only, no boxes. These capabilities are in addition to the usual line control capabilities of _plctrl.

\_pcolor
1xM vector or scalar for symbol colors. If scalar, all symbols will be one color.
Remarks¶
If missing values are encountered in the y data, they will be ignored
