    How are the error bars calculated for a regression model and can they be related to a confidence limit (confidence in the prediction)?

Possible Solutions:

    The error bars reported for inverse least squares models (and from the ils_esterror function) represent the estimation error for each prediction (see Faber, N.M. and Bro, R., Chemomem. and Intell. Syst., 61, 133-149 (2002) ). They can be read as a standard deviation of the estimate. However because the underlying distribution is not clearly known (and is a matter of research), a confidence limit is not reported.
