Examples
# NOT RUN {
library(ggplot2)
## some random data
test <- data.frame(x = rnorm(10), y = rnorm(10), z = rnorm(10))
test.long <- melt.long(test)
test.long
ggplot(test.long, aes(x = variable, y = value)) +
  geom_boxplot(aes(fill = variable))
## introducing an additional grouping variable
group <- factor(rep(c("a","b"), each = 5))
test.long.gr <- melt.long(test, select = 1:2, group = group)
test.long.gr
ggplot(test.long.gr, aes(x = variable, y = value, fill = group)) +
