st: how to draw a timeline bar failure figure. |

Deal listers, To make my question easier to understand, let's take the following date: ************data begins******* clear set obs 5 gen machine_id="" replace machine_id="A" in 1 replace machine_id= "A" in 2 replace machine_id= "B" in 3 replace machine_id= "B" in 4 replace machine_id= "C" in 5 gen fail_begin_hour=. replace fail_begin_hour=0 in 1 replace fail_begin_hour=15 in 2 replace fail_begin_hour=3 in 3 replace fail_begin_hour=16 in 4 replace fail_begin_hour=9 in 5 gen fail_end_hour=. replace fail_end_hour=15 in 1 replace fail_end_hour=21 in 2 replace fail_end_hour=13 in 3 replace fail_end_hour=24 in 4 replace fail_end_hour=17 in 5 gen fail_reason="" replace fail_reason="Unhappy" in 1 replace fail_reason="Nothappy" in 2 replace fail_reason="Happy" in 3 replace fail_reason="Very happy" in 4 replace fail_reason="Too Happy" in 5 ********data ends*************** In this dataset, I have four variables and five obs. It tells which machin_id fails at which time period (from fail_begin_hour to fail_end_hour) because of the fail_reason. What I'm trying to do is to draw a 'bar' graph with hours from 0 to 24 as the X axis, and the machine_ID on the Y-axis, showing the time interval when the corresponding machine is failed. And better, I want to show the reason of the fail just above the 'bar'. This seems an unusual figure, so any suggestions are appreciated.
