[R] Figure environment and includegraphics options from Sweave

Tha handy thinb about the fig=TRUE option in Sweave is that you do not have to bother about filenames and starting and stpping the device.

I want the the resulting LaTeX to look as:


> x <- seq(-2 * pi, 2 * pi, 0.1)
> plot(x, cos(x), type = "l", lwd = 4)


i.e. with options to the \includegraphics and all embedded in a figure environment.

Is there a way to do this without writing the figure environment

If not, is there a way to get the generated filename of the plot, or to explicitly give it
in the .rnw file? The point of course being to avoid to start and stop the graphics driver explicitly?
