If you mean you want to print the table, the xtable package in
CRAN will make very nice LaTeX output of a table.  Then use LaTeX
to convert that to PostScript (through dvi - although dvi itself
may be useful as a substitute a Power-Point-type presentation,
using xdvi full screen).

If you mean that you want a graph of the contents of the table,
just try plot(table(...)), or perhaps plot.table().  I was amazed
to see what happened when I did this.  It is a truly clever idea,
and I had never seen it before.
