Output the Graphics to PDF Device

Description

Output the Graphics to PDF Device

Usage

graph2pdf(
  outpdf,
  close = 0,
  paper = "a4r",
  height = 0,
  width = 0,
  onefile = TRUE,
  ...
)

Arguments

outpdf

The output pdf file name. When onefie=FALSE, give a C integer format such as "Rplot%03d.pdf".

close

= 1 to close the pdf device.

paper

Size of the pdf paper: "a4", "letter", "legal" and "executive", or "a4r" and "USr" for rotated (landscape.)

height

Height of the pdf paper in mm (not inches)

width

Width of the pdf paper in mm (not inches)

onefile

= FLASE to create many files.

...

Other arguments to native pdf function.

Details

This function calls native pdf function as:
pdf(outpdf, paper=paper, height=height, width=width , onefile=onefile, ... )
When paper=NULL or "special", the paper size will be determined by width and hight.
The defalt paper size is "a4r" which is equivalent to:
paper="special", height=210, width=297

Examples

## Not run: 
plot(-5:5,(-5:5)^2, type="l", main="square")
plot(-5:5,(-5:5)^3, type="l", main="cubic")

# put everything in one pdf file

plot(-5:5,(-5:5)^2, type="l", main="square")
plot(-5:5,(-5:5)^3, type="l", main="cubic")

# create one pdf file for each graph with automatic naming
