Hi Henrik,

Try this instead.

# plot small values

plot(x, meansarr, ylim=c(12, 30), axes=F, type="b", xlab="", ylab="Day")
arrows(x, meansarr-searr, x, meansarr+searr, code = 3,
angle = 90, length = 0.03)

box()

# x-axis

axis(1, tck=0.01, las=1, at=1:4,

labels=c("1998", "1999", "2002", "2003"), mgp=c(3, 0.5, 0))
# y-axis

axis(2,at=c(12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 24, 26, 28,
30),labels=c("12","14","16","18","20", "34","36","38","40"))
# break axis

axis.break(2, 22, style="zigzag")

# now just add the points by subtracting the "gap" you have
# used in the axis labels like gap.plot does
points(x, meanslay, type="b")

# and add the error bars using the same trick
arrows(x, meanslay-10-selay, x, meanslay-10+selay, code = 3,
angle = 90, length=0.03)

This seems to do the job on my Linux box. If you find that there is still a problem with Windows, email me again and I'll try it at work.

Jim
