Class Description

   A TGraphErrors is a TGraph with error bars.
   The various format options to draw a TGraphErrors are explained in
     TGraphErrors::Paint.

*-*                  ===============================

void Apply(TF1 *f)
 apply function to all the data points
 y = f(x,y)

 The error is calculated as ey=(f(x,y+ey)-f(x,y-ey))/2
 This is the same as error(fy) = df/dy * ey for small errors

 For generic functions the symmetric errors might become non-symmetric
 and are averaged here. Use TGraphAsymmErrors if desired.

 error on x doesn't change
 function suggested/implemented by Miroslav Helbich <helbich@mail.desy.de>

void ComputeRange(Double_t &xmin, Double_t &ymin, Double_t &xmax, Double_t &ymax) const

Double_t GetErrorX(Int_t i) const
    This function is called by GraphFitChisquare.
    It returns the error along X at point i.

Double_t GetErrorY(Int_t i) const
    This function is called by GraphFitChisquare.
    It returns the error along Y at point i.

Int_t InsertPoint()
 Insert a new point at the mouse position

void Paint(Option_t *option)
 Paint this TGraphErrors with its current attributes

 by default horizonthal and vertical small lines are drawn at
 the end of the error bars. if option "z" or "Z" is specified,
 these lines are not drawn.

 if option contains ">" an arrow is drawn at the end of the error bars
 if option contains "|>" a full arrow is drawn at the end of the error bars
 the size of the arrow is set to 2/3 of the marker size.

 By default, error bars are drawn. If option "X" is specified,
 the errors are not drawn (TGraph::Paint equivalent).

 if option "[]" is specified only the end vertical/horizonthal lines
 of the error bars are drawn. This option is interesting to superimpose
 systematic errors on top of a graph with statistical errors.

 Use gStyle->SetErrorX(dx) to control the size of the error along x.
 set dx = 0 to suppress the error along x.

 Use gStyle->SetEndErrorSize(np) to control the size of the lines
 at the end of the error bars (when option 1 is used).
 By default np=1. (np reprersents the number of pixels).

void Print(Option_t *) const
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Print graph and errors values*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
*-*                  =============================


Int_t RemovePoint()
 Delete point close to the mouse position

Int_t RemovePoint(Int_t ipnt)
 Delete point number ipnt

void SavePrimitive(ofstream &out, Option_t *option)
 Save primitive as a C++ statement(s) on output stream out

void Set(Int_t n)
 Set number of points in the graph
 Existing coordinates are preserved
 New coordinates and errors above fNpoints are preset to 0.

void SetPoint(Int_t i, Double_t x, Double_t y)
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Set x and y values for point number i*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
*-*                  =====================================

void SetPointError(Int_t i, Double_t ex, Double_t ey)
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Set ex and ey values for point number i*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
*-*                  =======================================

void Streamer(TBuffer &b)
 Stream an object of class TGraphErrors.
