[R] example(plot) question

>From Windows RGui, I tried:

example(plot)

This worked as expected except that the various plots write over top of each other in the graphics window that is created. I then discovered that graphics history is not enabled during the example generation.

I used the graphics window menu to enable the history and repeated example(plot), but this raises a couple of questions:

Is there a command line equivalent for activating plot history? Is plot history a par() or options() setting or is it intrinsic to an individual graphics window?

Is there an argument to example() that enables plot history and/or wouldn't it make sense to have this activated by default whenever an example() execution creates plots?

I tried:

help.search('plot record')
help.search('plot history')
help.search('history recording')

without finding anything insightful to help with this topic, but I'm just betting more than one of you knows what I should have typed or where I should look<G>.

Thanks,

Rob
