[R] Printing Lattice Graphs from Windows

      Using R 1.9.1 alpha via XEmacs with ESS under Windows 2000, I did 
the following: 


      I got the plot in a separate window, from which I did File -> Copy 
to the clipboard -> as a metafile.  I then changed to MS Word, and it 
pasted fine. 

      When I started R 1.9.1 alpha directly (without XEmacs) and tried 
the same thing, I got a standard lattice plot.  However, when I tried 
File -> Copy to the clipboard -> as a metafile, I got a blank plot when 
copying into MS Word.  When I copied as a bitmap, it came through fine.  
However, I suspect that is unacceptable. 

      Conclusion:   ESS with Emacs or XEmacs could provide you an 
alternative to 'dev.copy', etc., suggested by Ulises Mora Alverez. 

      hope this helps.  spencer graves
