Strictly no. You would need to open an R graphics device, and you can't
do that from the publically declared headers. And you would need to
handle all the error conditions that call back into R.

graphics via R calls.
I don't think there are many examples: Rgraphics.h was included for
use by experts writing addons. Paul Murrell may be able to help more.
