[R graphics] Correlation plot

I have made a R function to make correlation plot like the one below. The R function is revised from the Figure 8 in Tian Zheng, Matthew Salganik, and Andrew Gelman, 2006, "How many people do you know in prison?": using overdispersion in count data to estimate social structure in networks". Journal of the American Statistical Association, Vol.101, N0. 474: p.409-23.


x1 <- rnorm(1000,50,2)
x2 <- rbinom(1000,1,prob=0.63)
x3 <- rpois(1000, 2)
x4 <- runif(1000,40,100)
x5 <- rnorm(1000,100,30)
x6 <- runif(1000,-10,-1)
x7 <- rpois(1000,10)
x8 <- rbinom(1000,1,prob=0.4)
x9 <- rbeta(1000,5,4)
x10 <- rbeta(1000,2,2) <- data.matrix(cbind(x1,x2,x3,x4,x5,x6,x7,x8,x9,x10))
test.names <- c("name1","name2","name3","name4","name5",
