Since I have recently become an S-PLUS user, I am not familiar with
constructing "equally scaled plots". I do not know if it is possible to have
a multipanel page with equally scaled plots using S-PLUS. I experimented
with various ways of drawing each of the three 2D graphs (2 variables at a
time) using the dialog boxes of S-PLUS 4.5, but could not succeed yet to put
all of the graphs on the same page where interpoint distances are comparable
across the plots. Drs. Venables and Ripley discuss briefly "equally scaled
plots" in their book which is titled "Modern Applied Statistics with
S-PLUS"(2 ed. p. 76), and mention that their function EQSCPLOT can handle
equally scaled plots rather easily. Although I have downloaded their library
from the site for their book, I am not familiar with how to use their
functions yet.
I would appreciate any suggestions in addressing this problem. For those who
may want to take a crack at this problem, my data set is given below. The
first three columns correspond to the three variables that I want to plot,
and the last column denotes the symbols that I would like to use in plotting
the points.

Thank you.
Note: I am using S-PLUS 4.5.
