[R] Specifying plot file name in the rscript

When you call plot() it will draw to the default device - in your case
the pdf() device. When the default device results in a file, R selects
a filename for you unless you tell it otherwise.  You can specify the
filename by explicitly calling pdf() first.

plot(res.pca, choix="var", axes=c(1,2))

plot(res.pca, choix="ind", axes=c(1,2))

See ?device for a listing of available devices.
