[S] BISQUARE WEIGHTS

In order to fit a procedure to analyse the trend and the seasonal component
of a time series, I need to use the bisquare weights, where, i.e., the
robustness weights are formed by the bisquare weight function B:
B= ( 1-u^2 )^2 for 0 <= u < 1
B= 0 otherwise

I'm not able to find the right command in S-Plus4.
Did anybody use that before?
many thanks
Stefano
