Are you sure that partest-1 does not work and partest-2 does work, presuming those are the first and second scripts, respectively, you refer to above?

In partest-2, you have the line:

  # par(tcl=0.5,las=1)

which is commented out with the '#' and therefore will not be interpreted by R, thus non-functional.

In partest-1, the line is:


where it will be interpreted by R and thus functional.
