Subject: [R] Creating images without X11

Dear Colleagues,

We are attempting to create trees using R with our Ruby on Rails
application. However, we are running into a problem involving the
creation of the graphic. We would like them to be in either jpg or png
format so that users can save, but due to a lack of control over our
sever we are unable to start X11 server. Is there a way to create
these images without using X11 server?
