What kind of graphics file did you try to write? For me, postscript() or
pdf() work fine in any situation.
[trying to remember past issues on this list]
Some other graphics drivers depend on Xwindows to work and, for some
reasons, don't work from a batch file. I believe that the driver bitmap()
will work in any case, have a look at that.
[trying the "obvious"]
You did close the graphics device after plotting, didn't you? :-)
