<<There is no way to resize an existing graphics window from the command
<<ine on any of the R graphics platforms, and no one has ever asked for
<<this before.
I found in mailing list archives article, that describes how to resize
X11 graphical window on *nix through *nix command-line interface from R.:)
We can not say that "no one" asked for it:)

<<Why do you want to do it?
I want to do it cause i need to preserve size of plot when i copy it to the
other program or when i save it to file. I mean, that, for some reasons, i
dont want to resize plot after i have copied it or after i've save it to
I need to adjust plot size 'on the fly' and _before_ i export it.

When i copy a plot i think it copies in sizes of device size, am i right?
Or which object (or which region) i really copying when i copying the plot?
Is it 'figure region'? Or
it is 'display region' of the device? or 'plot region'? I just have not find
a way, that i can
setup overall size of region, which copies when i trying to copy a plot. And
for this
reason i have thought, that only way to resize region, that actually copies,
is to resize

Now i do resizing in such manner:
i open new device with size, that i need and copying the plot to this device
and closing
'old' device. Or i do it through R recordPlot - replayPlot capabilities.

Thanks for your help and sorry for my english not very well.

P.S. - maybe you know, are there any R-related resources in russian
Or are there any R-contributors in Russia? or any information about R
and  R-community in Russia? I am from Russia and i have not find any person
that using R here yet, and have not found any resources about R in
