I tried make a pca analysis with R. For this propose i need centered rows and
columns. I make this using the function princomp:

> zz<-princomp(x,cor=TRUE)

When i do it each column have mean=0 and standard deviation=1.

But i have this problem: the total inertia, sum of Eigenval., dont is = 
                   =number of columns * 1= sum of total standard deviation

Why? It's a bug in R?

I have make  online this analyse in 
and everything it's OK.

Thanks in advance
