Defines functions fplot

## ==========================================================================
## a simple plot method without strange plot parameter and friends. It does
## the most intuitive thing: take a flowFrame and do a pairs plot if there
## are more than 2 parameters. Do a smoothScatter plot for exactly 2
## parameters and a histogram for exactly one.
## If you want to plot specific columns, subset the frame before
## plotting or specify them in the y argument.
## We record parameters of the plot in the internal flowViz.state environment
## which will later be useful to figure out the plotting parameters when
## adding gate outlines to a plot

#' Very basic plotting of flowFrames
#' 
#' A basic method to plot \code{\link[flowCore:flowFrame-class]{flowFrame}}
#' objects. Depending on the number of dimensions, different types of plots are
#' generates. See below for details.
#' 
#' 
#' Basic plots for \code{flowFrame} objects. If the object has only a single
#' parameter this produces a \code{\link[graphics:hist]{histogram}}. For
#' exactly two parameters we plot a bivariate density map (see
#' \code{\link[graphics]{smoothScatter}}) and for more than two parameters we
#' produce a simple \code{\link[lattice]{splom}} plot. To select specific
#' parameters from a \code{flowFrame} for plotting, either subset the object or
#' specify the parameters as a character vector in the second argument to
#' \code{plot}. The \code{smooth} parameters lets you toggle between
#' density-type \code{\link[graphics]{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.
