There must be a simple answer. I want to plot an expression, 
where the expression is held in a string variable. The "obvious" 
solution along the lines of

plot( c(0,1), c(0,1), main=as.expression(ex) )

gives me the a title x^2 - ie doesn't treat it like an expression. I 
suspect I don't understand expressions properly. For the real 
problem I do need to have my expression string in a variable as it is 

Can someone tell me the magic words?
