Divert R's standard text output to a graphics device.
Plot arguments. (Ignored unless
This function allows the printed output of R commands to be captured and displayed on a graphics device.
The capture process is started by calling
sinkplot("start"). Now R commands can be executed and all
printed output (except errors) will be captured. When the desired
text has been captured
sinkplot("plot") can be called to
actually display the output.
sinkplot("cancel") can be used to
abort the output capture without plotting.
The current implementation does not allow
sinkplot to be nested.
Invisibly returns a character vector containing one element for each line of the captured output.
