if you ever try to run xcbar with no arguments, a help menu should appear
and indicate all possible inputs and arguments. To answer your question,
you can use the first four arguments to set the x-limits and y-limits of
the color bar. The code will assume that if you choose really narrow
x-limits and comparatively larger y-limits that you are looking for a
vertical color bar, and will plot it as such.
