[R] Read In and Output Postscript file

One way to approach this from within R would be to use gs to convert the 
preexisting postscript file to some sort of bitmap, and then read that into 
R and plot it.

Another way to do this, outside of R, would be to use the capabilities of 
gs to combine multiple ps files (for example, I often generate multiple 
single-page postscript files, and then use gs to wrap them up in a pdf).

hope this helps,
