The function FUN is applied to f in bins specified by xbreaks. (If FUN is mean(), consider using binMean2D() instead, since it should be faster.)

binApply1D(x, f, xbreaks, FUN, ...)



a vector of numerical values.


a vector of data to which the elements of FUN may be supplied


values of x at the boundaries between bins; calculated using pretty() if not supplied.


function to apply to the data


arguments to pass to the function FUN


A list with the following elements: the breaks in x and y (xbreaks and ybreaks), the break mid-points (xmids and ymids), and a matrix containing the result of applying function FUN to f subsetted by these breaks.
