[R] Adding LaTeX cross-references into Sweave plots

Hi all

I'm using Sweave and LaTeX, and love how they interact.

But here's a different interaction I'm not sure how to achieve; I hope someone can help. I use a simple example, of course, to demonstrate.

Suppose in my LaTeX document I have this:

	Here is a linear equation:
		y = -1 + 3 x

This appears in the final product with an Equation number, say (1).

Now suppose I wish to produce a graphic in R:

	plot( c(-1,1), c(-1,1), type="n", 
		main="Graph of Eq (1)")
	abline(-1, 3)


All easy.

But... how to I ensure the correct LaTeX label appears in the plot? You see, if I run LaTeX again, and my equation is no longer labelled (1) and changes to (say) label (3), I have to manually fix the Sweave code to read

	plot( c(-1,1), c(-1,1), type="n", 
		main="Graph of Eq (3)")
	abline(-1, 3)


Any ideas of how that can be automated? I guess something like this (though this obviously will fail):

	plot( c(-1,1), c(-1,1), type="n", 
		main="Graph of Eq (\label{EQ:equation})")
	abline(-1, 3)


Thanks as always.
