One standard way is to use the postscript device:

    plot(1:10, sqrt(1:10));

Don't forget / omit the dev.off() call when done, otherwise the file may
be incomplete (unflushed).

With (e.g.)

    postscript("myplot.eps", width=8, height=6, onefile=FALSE, horizontal=FALSE);

you can create nice EPS files, suitable for inclusion in LaTeX...
