[R] questions about scatterplotMatrix

Dear Wendy,

This must be the scatterplotMatrix() function in the car package. If I
understand correctly what you want, the following should do it:

scatterplotMatrix(~ income + education + prestige, 
	smooth = FALSE, data=Duncan,  diagonal="none", 
	reg.line=function(...) abline(0,1), 
	xlim=c(0, 100), ylim=c(0, 100))

(The reg.line argument must be a function.)

I hope this helps,
