A SVG Graphics Driver with dynamic tips

This package contains a SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) device that will write to a file. The SVG shapes have optional tooltips and/or hyperlinks. The resulting SVG files should conform the W3C Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) standard (with the possible exception of toolTipMode=2) and do display correctly in the SVG viewer in Mozilla Firefox under Windows (XP) and Linux (Ubuntu).

Details

This graphics device supplies the underlying functions that are called by plot, lines, etc, and the following functions that are called by the user to access the special capabilities of the SVG device:

# This example shows what happens with text clipping.

# the text method for the device whenever the text might
# be a little out-of-bounds (because of the setting
# dd->canClip=FALSE in src/devSVG.c).  It seems to be too
# aggressive about this, e.g., when par(xpd=NA) (xpd=NA
# means clip to device region, xpd=TRUE means clip to
# figure region, and xpd=FALSE means clip to plot region).
