## Extend a Numerical Range by a Small Percentage

### Description

Extends a numerical range by a small percentage, i.e., fraction, on both sides.

### Usage

```extendrange(x, r = range(x, na.rm = TRUE), f = 0.05)
```

### Arguments

 `x` numeric vector; not used if `r` is specified. `r` numeric vector of length 2; defaults to the `range` of `x`. `f` positive number(s) specifying the fraction by which the range should be extended. If longer than one, `f[1]` is used on the left, and `f[2]` on the right.

### Value

A numeric vector of length 2, `r + c(-f1,f2) * diff(r)`, where f1 is `f[1]` and f2 is `f[2]` or `f` if it is of length one.

`range`; `pretty` which can be considered a sophisticated extension of `extendrange`.

### Examples

```x <- 1:5
(r <- range(x))         # 1    5
extendrange(x)          # 0.8  5.2
extendrange(x, f= 0.01) # 0.96 5.04

## extend more to the right:
extendrange(x, f=c(.01,.03)) # 0.96 5.12

## Use 'r' if you have it already:
stopifnot(identical(extendrange(r = r),
extendrange(x)))
```
