Please mail always also to the list, since it may be that there is someone who could reply better and/or faster.

Especially in this case since I am only experienced in M$ Windows and Linux so I am unable to guess whats wrong with OSX. does not even the postscript device work? With postscript I get the best quality for printing.

e.g.:

curve(x^2)
dev.off()
