x 
Output from 
what 
The type of graph. It can be one of the following:

data 
The data vector, matrix or data.frame (or some
transformation of them), used for obtaining the

margins 
A vector of integers denoting the variables (numbers of columns of

cluster 
An integer denoting the cluster for which the fit
plot is returned. This is only relevant if 
... 
further arguments passed to or from other methods. 
what="fit"
The P
P plot (probability
probability plot) of the weighted empirical
distribution function of the Mahalanobis distances of observations
from clusters' centers against the target distribution. The target
distribution is the Chisquare distribution with degrees of
freedom equal to ncol(data)
. The weights are given by the improper posterior
probabilities. If cluster=NULL
P
P plots are produced for
all clusters, otherwise cluster
selects a single P
P
plot at times.
what="clustering"
A pairwise scatterplot with cluster memberships. Points
assigned to the noise/outliers component are denoted by
'+'
.
