pictex {grDevices}R Documentation

A PicTeX Graphics Driver


This function produces graphics suitable for inclusion in TeX and LaTeX documents.


pictex(file = "Rplots.tex", width = 5, height = 4, debug = FALSE,
       bg = "white", fg = "black")


file the file where output will appear.
width The width of the plot in inches.
height the height of the plot in inches.
debug should debugging information be printed.
bg the background color for the plot. Ignored.
fg the foreground color for the plot. Ignored.


This driver does not have any font metric information, so the use of plotmath is not supported.

Multiple plots will be placed as separate environments in the output file.

Line widths are ignored except when setting the spacing of line textures. pch="." corresponds to a square of side 1pt.

This device does not support colour (nor does the PicTeX package), and all colour settings are ignored.


This driver was provided by Valerio Aimale valerio@svpop.com.dist.unige.it of the Department of Internal Medicine, University of Genoa, Italy.
