Base R doesn't have support for the GIF format, but it can produce
PNG, EPS or JPEG graphics files. It's possible there's a
user-contributed package that does GIF, but the license restrictions
make that somewhat unlikely.
So yes, you could run R in batch mode to do what you want, as long as
GIF isn't a requirement.
