spikeplot produces a frequency plot for a variable in which the frequencies are depicted as vertical lines from zero. The frequency may be a count, a fraction, or the square root of the count (Tukey's rootogram, circa 1965). The vertical lines may also originate from a baseline other than zero at the user's option.


+------+ ----+ Main +-------------------------------------------------------------

round(#) rounds the values of varname to the nearest multiple of #. This action effectively specifies the bin width.

fraction specifies that the vertical scale be the proportion of total values (percentage) rather than the count.

root specifies that the vertical scale show square roots. This option may not be specified if fraction is specified.

+------+ ----+ Plot +-------------------------------------------------------------

spike_options affect the rendition of the plotted spikes; see [G-2] graph twoway spike.

+-----------+ ----+ Add plots +--------------------------------------------------------

addplot(plot) provides a way to add other plots to the generated graph; see [G-3] addplot_option.

twoway_options are any of the options documented in [G-3] twoway_options. These include options for titling the graph (see [G-3] title_options), options for saving the graph to disk (see [G-3] saving_option), and the by() option (see [G-3] by_option).
