See ?pdf if you just want to save plots into a PDF file.
Perhaps you know a package I should check out? What

If you're an emacs user, or even if you're not, you might benefit greatly from
org-mode and org-babel. Just google those terms, they aren't directly
associated with R, but can use R to easily generate pdf output (and/or html) in
an Sweave type fashion without you having to know any markup language. I can't
recommend it highly enough.
