What about using dev.copy? Or am I missing something? In windows there
is a context menu when you click with the right mouse button, which
lets you choose how do you want to save the plot. On linux I came up
with such function, which albeit not perfectly but does the job:
d2b <- function(file="Rplot%d.bmp",height=4,width=4,res=150,which=dev.cur(),...)
cur <- dev.cur()
else cur <- NULL
It copies told device (current by default) to bitmap file. This
function could be easily adapted for copying to other formats.
Since the answer was too easy, probably I did not understand question
correctly. In that case please ignore this message.
