[R] line length in legend

Is it possible to set the length of the lines appearing in a
legend? For example, with

> plot(window(EuStockMarkets, end = 1992), plot.type = "s", lty = c("13", "6413", "431313", "B4"))
> legend(1991.7, 2200, legend = colnames(EuStockMarkets), lty = c("13", "6413", "431313", "B4"))

I end up with a legend in which the "dot-dash" patterns of the
different line types are hard to distinguish. With a longer piece of
line that would be easier.

Thank you in advance,
