[R] text plots?

There are some very basic interface functions to gnuplot in the
TeachingDemos package that may make option 2 below a little quicker. Or
even better you could expand them to work better.
The following works on a single windows machine (don't have linux or a
remote machine to test with):
library(TeachingDemos)
x <- runif(100)
y <- rnorm(100)
gp.open()
gp.send('set terminal dumb')
gp.plot(x,y)
# switch to gnuplot window to look at plot
gp.close()
Hope this helps,

From the responses so far, the short answer appears to be, no.
That appears to leave two options for viewing plots on a remote machine:
1) use X11 forwarding (requires an X11 server and that X11 forwarding be
enabled), although the plots won't be in text.
2) output the data to a file and use another program to plot the data as
text, e.g. MacAnova or gnuplot.
Is that a fair summary?
