Creating gif files using R

    I am a new user of R but a long time fan of S (Splus) and have
installed R version 0.65.1 on a
Windows NT machine. I would like to save plots as gif files and have
been using savePlot()
with some success. I found that savePlot would not work without
modification, namely
decrementing the device by 1 before calling the internal routine that
does the conversion. Once
that change was made it worked as advertised. I am wondering now whether
I could generate
the gif files in a batch job. I am wanting to do a web-based analysis
that includes a call to
R which would return a gif file for display in a browser. Is this
possible directly with R?

Thanks in advance for any help,
