Methods for aligning breaks (bins) in histograms, as used in the `align`

argument to `density_histogram()`

.

Supports automatic partial function application.

## Arguments

- breaks
A sorted vector of breaks (bin edges).

- at
A scalar numeric giving an alignment point.

For

`align_boundary()`

: align breaks so that a bin edge lines up with`at`

.For

`align_center()`

: align breaks so that the center of a bin lines up with`at`

.

## Details

These functions take a sorted vector of equally-spaced `breaks`

giving
bin edges and return a numeric offset which, if subtracted from `breaks`

,
will align them as desired:

`align_none()`

performs no alignment (it always returns`0`

).`align_boundary()`

ensures that a bin edge lines up with`at`

.`align_center()`

ensures that a bin center lines up with`at.`

For `align_boundary()`

(respectively `align_center()`

), if no bin edge (or center) in the
range of `breaks`

would line up with `at`

, it ensures that `at`

is an integer
multiple of the bin width away from a bin edge (or center).

## Examples

```
library(ggplot2)
set.seed(1234)
x = rnorm(200, 1, 2)
# If we manually specify a bin width using breaks_fixed(), the default
# alignment (align_none()) will not align bin edges to any "pretty" numbers.
# Here is a comparison of the three alignment methods on such a histogram:
ggplot(data.frame(x), aes(x)) +
stat_slab(
aes(y = "align_none()\nor 'none'"),
density = "histogram",
breaks = breaks_fixed(width = 1),
outline_bars = TRUE,
# no need to specify align; align_none() is the default
color = "black",
) +
stat_slab(
aes(y = "align_center(at = 0)\nor 'center'"),
density = "histogram",
breaks = breaks_fixed(width = 1),
align = align_center(at = 0), # or align = "center"
outline_bars = TRUE,
color = "black",
) +
stat_slab(
aes(y = "align_boundary(at = 0)\nor 'boundary'"),
density = "histogram",
breaks = breaks_fixed(width = 1),
align = align_boundary(at = 0), # or align = "boundary"
outline_bars = TRUE,
color = "black",
) +
geom_point(aes(y = 0.7), alpha = 0.5) +
labs(
subtitle = "ggdist::stat_slab(density = 'histogram', ...)",
y = "align =",
x = NULL
) +
geom_vline(xintercept = 0, linetype = "22", color = "red")
