My two sentences above were largely irrelevant and the link with MASS (4th ed. p. 333) was quite oblique. Ignore them, as I would expect most people would.

However, your suggestion of performing a replicatible experiment is useful and an exact replica of my problem occurs in it. From MASS 4th ed. page 304.

data(iris3); ir <- rbind(iris3[,,1], iris3[,,2], iris3[,,3])

ir.species <- factor(c(rep("s", 50), rep("c", 50), rep("v", 50)))
ir.pca <- princomp(log(ir), cor = T)
ir.pc <- predict(ir.pca)

plot(ir.pc[, 1:2], type = "n", xlab = "first principal component", ylab = "second principal component")

Apparently good plot (to screen). The 150 data points and three species appear to be there.

Now to PostScript.

postscript("irpca.eps", horizontal=FALSE, onefile=TRUE, height=6, width=6, pointsize=8, paper="special")
plot(ir.pc[, 1:2], type = "n", xlab = "first principal component", ylab = "second principal component")

text(ir.pc[,1:2], labels = as.character(ir.species))

Problem. Only 21 "s" points shown -- over on left hand side of the plot.

In my original problem also, the plot was limited 21 points.

TIA, Jon C.
