I have the following text and code i would like to place into a pdf with sweave, but I would like to change the margins on the produced document. The options(width=60) I guess should do this but when I put it to wok, it is not functioning. perhaps my calling of commands is off?

The command options(width=60) affects the display of R output.  It 
doesn't affect the margins of other text in the document.  You need to 
use LaTeX commands to change those, e.g.


to set the text width to 3 inches.  See a LaTeX manual for other 
margins.  (The left, top and bottom margins will also affect R output.)
