Re: [R] Crosstabs Output

I don't know anything about RKWard, so I will leave that question to others (though my answer to the other questions may help, or may not).

A couple of ways to mix text with plots when using pdf() (or other graphics output to files) are the textplot function in the gplots package and the addtable2plot function in the plotrix package.

A better approach is to use sweave or odfWeave (odfWeave package). Here you create a file with the commands you want to run and any text you want to include (can be the final report layout with commands instead of results) then process it using sweave or odfWeave, then convert the result (a LaTeX file for sweave, and openoffice file for odfWeave) to a pdf file.

The R2HTML package also has a way to save a transcript of your session as an html file with output and graphs included (there is a simple set of tools following the same idea in the TeachingDemos package (see ?etxtStart) that with a few outside tools will create a postscript, then a pdf file of the transcript).

Hope this helps,
