[R] Postscript resolution

Hi all

I have some plots that I wish to write out to postcript files.  I open 
the postscript device as suggested [postscript(file="foo.eps",...)], run 
my plotting commands, and close the device as suggested [dev.off()].  
However, when I open the eps files in a postscript viewer such as the 
gimp, the resolution of the postscript images is *really* bad, very 
"blocky" and "chunky", without the crisp lines and text that I 
expected.  I seem to remember that specifying the resolution of the 
image to be written to the eps file somewhere gets around this.  


Am running R 1.3.0 on a Mandrake 8.0 system.
