Very basic plotting of flowFrames

Description

A basic method to plot flowFrame objects. Depending on the number of dimensions, different types of plots are generates. See below for details.

Details

Basic plots for flowFrame objects. If the object has only a single parameter this produces a histogram. For exactly two parameters we plot a bivariate density map (see smoothScatter) and for more than two parameters we produce a simple splom plot. To select specific parameters from a flowFrame for plotting, either subset the object or specify the parameters as a character vector in the second argument to plot. The smooth parameters lets you toggle between density-type smoothScatter plots and regular scatter or pairs plots. For far more sophisticated plotting of flow cytometry data, see the lattice-style plot methods provided by this package.
