I think the function you want is "dev.print".  It starts the
postscript device driver and then does a dev.copy of the
current picture to it.  By default, the plot is saved in
"", but you can change that as follows:


You can also specify other arguments to "postscript"

	dev.print(file="pic.eps", height=3, width=4, pointsize=10)

I will be documenting this stuff, and  writing a wysiwyg hardcopy
gadget as well.
