[R] Plotting proportions

There's a graphics parameter for aspect ratio that you can set asp=1 on 
a plot by plot basis. But you also need to change pty. From ?par:

A character specifying the type of plot region to be used; "s" generates 
a square plotting region and "m" generates the maximal plotting region.

old_par <- par(pty = "s")
plot(1, asp = 1)

Hope this helps,
