Change width of error bars

I am plotting a curve with error bars in the y direction, and the the bars
are too wide. Is there any way to change their width ? So, it is not the
'linewidth' that I want to change but the length of the top of the 'T' of
the errorbars.

 I have many datapoints on the curve, the points are quite close to each
other and I should put an error bar on all of them. So because the error
bars are too wide they all overlap, giving an ugly hairy curve. I don't mind
personally, but I have to prepare a figure for a publication and it should
look nice. I save the figure using print, in the eps format. Whatever the
size I choose for the final figure, the error bars always have the same
width and they always overlap...

by the way I'm using octave 3.4.2
thanks for your help
