## Quantile-Quantile Plots of Two Samples

### Description

Quantile-Quantile plots for comparing two Distributions

### Usage

```qq(formula, f.value = NULL, ...)
```

### Arguments

 `formula` formula of the form `y ~ x | g1 * g2 * ...`, where `x` must be a numeric, and `y` can be a factor, shingle, character or numeric vector, with the restriction that there must be exactly two levels of `y`, which divide the values of `x` into two groups. Quantiles for these groups will be plotted along the two axes. `f.value` optional function of a single integer (representing the larger of the two sample sizes), returning a vector of probabilities corresponding to which quantiles should be plotted. The typical value for this argument is `ppoints`, which is also the S-PLUS default. If specified, the probabilities generated by this function is used for the plotted quantiles, using the `quantile` function. `f.value` defaults to `NULL`, which is equivalent to using `function(n) ppoints(n, a = 1)`. This has the effect of including the minimum and maximum data values in the computed quantiles. This is similar to what happens for `qqplot` but different from the default `qq` behaviour in S-PLUS. `...` Other arguments

### Details

`qq` produces a Q-Q plot of two samples. The default behaviour of `qq` is different from the corresponding S-PLUS function. See the entry for `f.value` for specifics.

This and all other high level Trellis functions have several arguments in common. These are extensively documented only in the help page for `xyplot`, which should be consulted to learn more detailed usage.

### Value

An object of class ``trellis''. The `update' method can be used to update components of the object and the `print' method (usually called by default) will plot it on an appropriate plotting device.
