graph7 ... , star ... specifies a star chart. Up to 16 variables may be specified. For an introduction to graph7, see graph7.

Options unique to star

label(varname) specifies that the contents of varname should be used to label each star. varname may be either string or numeric. By default, graph7 labels each star with its observation number.

select(#1,#2) selects observations #1 through #2 for graphing. graph7 still examines all the data to set the scaling. The scaling of a star chart is a function of all the stars to be graphed. select() allows you to magnify one or a few stars in the data while maintaining the same scaling.
