#' Remote R PNG Device
#'
#' @description
#' Provide a graphic device locally for plots generated on server of Remote R
#' 
#' \code{rpng()} generates locally a device/window.
#'
#' \code{rpng.new()} generates locally a device/window.
#'
#' \code{rpng.off()} turns off locally a device/window.
#'
#' \code{dev.off()} is an alias of \code{rpng.off()} in order to consisten
#' with th original device function \code{grDevices::dev.off()}.
#'
#' @param filename
#' A temporary file to save the plot on server
#' @param width
#' width of the plot as in \code{grDevices::png()}
#' @param height
#' height of the plot as in \code{grDevices::png()}
#' @param units
#' units of the width and height as in \code{grDevices::png()}
#' @param pointsize
#' pointsze of the plotted text as in \code{grDevices::png()}
#' @param bg
#' background colour as in \code{grDevices::png()}
#' @param res
#' resolution as in \code{grDevices::png()}
#' @param ...
#' additional arguments as in \code{grDevices::png()}
