I am not sure about the movie question but for the write table you could 
just generate a dynamic file name, for example

for (i in 1:10)

With my current knowledge, I can activate "history" in the graphic output during my simulation loop and then manually save individual graphical frames of the simulation as picture files that I import into a movie making program.  Is there an easier way to save a movie in R?

For example, I am creating consecutive matrices in a loop that I store within a three-dimensional array within the R program.  I would like to write a line in my loop that I imagine would say something like: write.table(X, "c:\\blah\\index.txt") and the loop would output consecutive 2-dimensional layers of my array in separate files.  If I add a line similar to above, R creates one file that it rewrites over every step of the loop.  Is there a way to automate the data saving process?
