values.

plot

Whether to plot a histogram.

freq

Whether to plot counts or densities.

ylim

custom x axis option and Martin Maechler for fixing the barplot problem

Details

weighted.hist calculates the weighted counts of values falling
into the ranges specified by breaks. Instead of counting each
value as 1, it counts the corresponding value in w (the weight).

breaks may be specified by a monotonically increasing vector
of numbers that are interpreted as the endpoints of the ranges, a
single number representing the number of ranges desired or the name
of the function to calculate the ranges (see hist).
If a vector of numbers is passed that does not include all values in
x, the user is warned.
