The following is not a problem in R 1.9.1:

> png(file = "test.png")
> par(mfrow = c(2,2))
> plot(c(1:10))
> plot(c(1:10))
> plot(c(1:10))
> plot(c(1:10))
> dev.off()
null device 

Have you tried that?

Ok, I have reinstalled R-1.9.0 and this appears to have fixed the
problems I was having with png(). However, I have a further question
regarding png()

Is it possible to pass a par() argument to the png() command? I am
wanting to produce 4 plots per object, which I normally acheive on an X
window by par(mfrow=c(1,4)). I have tried calling a new plot and setting
par in this way but this has no bearing when I call png().

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
