Bars! Bars! Bars!
Make bar charts rammed full of extra features:
- in full technicolor, with a unique colour for every bar if that's what you're into
- showing errors on the values using errorbars, with many styles available
- with statistical significance of each bar indicated with stars above them
- with statistical significance of comparisons between pairs of bars shown with lines between the pairs and stars above them
- and all this in either horizontal or vertical orientations
Have no fear. Superbar is here!
And that's not all! It comes with a free copy of SUPERERR, which you can use to plot error bars not on bar charts. Plot errors in both X and Y with lots of style options for capped, uncapped, one-directional, symmetric, asymmetric errorbars. It can do everything you want, just as long as what you want is to plot errorbars on a set of linear-linear axes!

If you want to help make SUPERBAR even more super, you can report bugs and suggest new features on GitHub:

Tested in R2011a (Windows) and R2016a (Windows & Ubuntu).
