## Rotated EPS from R in LaTeX

When it comes to figures in LaTeX, I usually generate figures in pdf format and use pdflatex to compile LaTeX with the pdf figures included. But sometimes a conference or a journal only accept figures in eps format, so I have to use EPS and the vanilla “latex” command.One problem is that I always have the EPS generated in R rotated in the resulting dvi file and I always have to use the \roatebox to correct the orientation.

Today, I reread the help file for the postscript() function in R and found the following solution:

The postscript produced for a single R plot is EPS (_Encapsulated   PostScript_) compatible, and can be included into other documents,    e.g., into LaTeX, using ‘\includegraphics{<filename>}’.  For use in this way you will probably want to use ‘setEPS()’ to set the defaults as ‘horizontal = FALSE, onefile = FALSE, paper = “special”‘.
