[R] export many plots to one file

Dear useRs,

I have a few hundred plots that I'd like to export to one document. pdf() isn't an option, because the file created is prohibitively huge (due to scatter plots with many points). So I have to use png() instead, but then I end up with a lot of files (would prefer just one).

  1. Is there a way to have pdf() embed images, instead of vector instructions? (What would have to be changed/added, and where? I'd consider that a very useful feature.)
  2. Does anyone have a script for importing many images (png, bitmap, jpg) into one PDF file? I'd prefer something that works both on Windows and GNU.

Thank you,
