## Triangular Representation and Groups of points

### Description

Function to plot triangular data (i.e. dataframe with 3 columns of positive or null values) and a partition

### Usage

```triangle.class(ta, fac, col = rep(1, length(levels(fac))),
wt = rep(1, length(fac)), cstar = 1, cellipse = 0, axesell = TRUE,
label = levels(fac), clabel = 1, cpoint = 1, pch = 20, draw.line = TRUE,
addaxes = FALSE, addmean = FALSE, labeltriangle = TRUE, sub = "", csub = 1,
possub = "bottomright", show.position = TRUE, scale = TRUE, min3 = NULL,
max3 = NULL)
```

### Arguments

 `ta` a data frame with 3 columns of null or positive numbers `fac` a factor of length the row number of `ta` `col` a vector of color for showing the groups `wt` a vector of row weighting for the computation of the gravity centers by class `cstar` a character size for plotting the stars between 0 (no stars) and 1 (complete star) for a line linking a point to the gravity center of its belonging class. `cellipse` a positive coefficient for the inertia ellipse size `axesell` a logical value indicating whether the ellipse axes should be drawn `label` a vector of strings of characters for the labels of gravity centers `clabel` if not NULL, a character size for the labels, used with `par("cex")*clabel` `cpoint` a character size for plotting the points, used with `par("cex")*cpoint`. If zero, no points are drawn `pch` if `cpoint` > 0, an integer specifying the symbol or the single character to be used in plotting points `draw.line` a logical value indicating whether the triangular lines should be drawn `addaxes` a logical value indicating whether the axes should be plotted `addmean` a logical value indicating whether the mean point should be plotted `labeltriangle` a logical value indicating whether the varliable labels of `ta` should be drawn on the triangular sides `sub` a string of characters for the graph title `csub` a character size for plotting the graph title `possub` a string of characters indicating the sub-title position ("topleft", "topright", "bottomleft", "bottomright") `show.position` a logical value indicating whether the sub-triangle containing the data should be put back in the total triangle `scale` a logical value for the graph representation : the total triangle (FALSE) or the sub-triangle (TRUE) `min3` if not NULL, a vector with 3 numbers between 0 and 1 `max3` if not NULL, a vector with 3 numbers between 0 and 1. Let notice that `min3`+`max3` must equal c(1,1,1)

### Examples

```if(!adegraphicsLoaded()) {
data(euro123)
par(mfrow = c(2, 2))
x <- rbind.data.frame(euro123\$in78, euro123\$in86, euro123\$in97)
triangle.plot(x)
triangle.class(x, as.factor(rep("G", 36)), csta = 0.5, cell = 1)
triangle.class(x, euro123\$plan\$an)
triangle.class(x, euro123\$plan\$pays)
triangle.class(x, euro123\$plan\$an, cell = 1, axesell = TRUE)
triangle.class(x, euro123\$plan\$an, cell = 0, csta = 0,
col = c("red", "green", "blue"), axesell = TRUE, clab = 2, cpoi = 2)
triangle.class(x, euro123\$plan\$an, cell = 2, csta = 0.5,
axesell = TRUE, clab = 1.5)
triangle.class(x, euro123\$plan\$an, cell = 0, csta = 1, scale = FALSE,
draw.line = FALSE, show.posi = FALSE)
par(mfrow = c(2, 2))
}```
