Dot plots are preferred over barplots to present estimates with error bars for grouped data, yet the latter are overwhelmingly more often used in such situations. The paper presents a code for an R function to produce a dot plot with error bars, employing the utility of the lattice package. Easy to use for non-advanced users of lattice and R, it offers much possibilities to control the appearance of the plot. Both horizontal and vertical versions of the plot can be produced.
