[R] Lattice graphics on Mac OS X

Do any of Lattice function (splom etc.) show the graphics on the graphic 
window on your machine?  It works with non-Lattice graphics like pairs, 
but not with Lattice.

But I will try your suggestion.  Actually I used postscript function to 
download the graphics on a file.  But I tried it only with pairs, but 
not with splom.  I should have thought about it!

I haven't tried pdf, but with postscript, strangely, only plots and 
texts become correctly horizontal, but axes stay in vertical mode.  So I 
have to rotate manually to correct the problem.  Somehow 
"horizontal=FALSE" works correctly for both plots/texts and axes.
