XGobi
(by Swayne, Cook and Buja; www.research.att.com/~andreas/xgobi/xgobi.html)
provides multivariate visualization facilities sadly lacking from
S-PLUS. I have ported the program and an S-PLUS interface to Windows
9x/NT, at

http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/SWin/xgobi.zip

which will mirror to

http://lib.stat.cmu.edu/DOS/S/SWin/xgobi.zip

shortly.

This is still an X program and so you need an X server on the Windows machine:
a free one does work, and (better) demos of commercial servers can also be used.
Details in the README.TXT in the file.

NB: No support, so please only try this if you are expert at installing
Windows programs. Get it working stand-alone first, then customize the
S-PLUS interface functions as needed.
