This function produces a plot of the residuals from WRTDS, expressed in natural log concentration units versus time. It also provides an alternative for viewing the standardized residuals, where the each residual is divided by its estimated standard error.

Although there are a lot of optional arguments to this function, most are set to a logical default.

Data come from named list, which contains a Sample dataframe with the sample data, and an INFO dataframe with metadata.

plotResidTime(eList, stdResid = FALSE, printTitle = TRUE, hLine = TRUE,
  tinyPlot = FALSE, col = "black", lwd = 1, cex = 0.8,
  cex.axis = 1.1, cex.main = 1.1, customPar = FALSE,
  randomCensored = FALSE, ...)



named list with at least the Sample and INFO dataframes


logical variable, if TRUE it uses the standardized residual, if FALSE it uses the actual, default is FALSE


logical variable if TRUE title is printed, if FALSE not printed (this is best for a multi-plot figure)


inserts horizontal line at zero


logical variable, if TRUE plot is designed to be plotted small, as a part of a multipart figure, default is FALSE


color of points on plot, see ?par 'Color Specification'


number line width


numerical value giving the amount by which plotting symbols should be magnified


magnification to be used for axis annotation relative to the current setting of cex


magnification to be used for main titles relative to the current setting of cex


logical defaults to FALSE. If TRUE, par() should be set by user before calling this function (for example, adjusting margins with par(mar=c(5,5,5,5))). If customPar FALSE, EGRET chooses the best margins depending on tinyPlot.


logical. Show censored residuals as randomized.


arbitrary graphical parameters that will be passed to genericEGRETDotPlot function (see ?par for options)
