S-PLUS provides comprehensive graphics facilities, from simple facilities for producing common diagnostic plots by plot (object) to fine control over publication-quality graphs. In consequence, the number of graphics parameters is huge. In this chapter, we build up the complexity gradually. Most readers will not need the material in Section 3.4, and indeed the material there is not used elsewhere in this book. However, we have needed to make use of it, especially in matching existing graphical styles.
