Provides a graphics output device for R that records plots in a LaTeX-friendly format. The device transforms plotting commands issued by R functions into LaTeX code blocks. When included in a LaTeX document, these blocks are interpreted with the help of 'TikZ'---a graphics package for TeX and friends written by Till Tantau. Using the 'tikzDevice', the text of R plots can contain LaTeX commands such as mathematical formula. The device also allows arbitrary LaTeX code to be inserted into the output stream.
pgfSweave provides a number of improvements to the speed and quality of Sweave output including: (1) capabilities for 'caching' graphics generated with Sweave on top of the caching mechanisms provided by cacheSweave, (2) an interface to the tikzDevice package which provides graphics with consistent font style, sizing and quality as the main document and (3) highlighting of echo'd source code via the highlight package. pgfSweave provides a new driver for Sweave (pgfSweaveDriver) with new chunk options tikz, external, sanitize, highlight and tidy on top of the cache option provided by cacheSweave.
