Hello,

I was wondering if anybody had any advice into using some percentiles as cutoffs for the length of whiskers in box plots.  i.e., the default is a distance of 1.5 times the IQR above the 75th percentile and 1.5 times the IQR below the 25th percentile.  I'm more interested in using some percentile, such as where the 5th and 95th or 1st and 99th percentiles of the data are.  

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Take care,

Dan
