Overiding print dialogue box

Dear Splus-group,

I have pages and pages of plots to print out using a personalized
plot function. I've been trying to figure out how to get them to plot
without the need for interacting with dialogue boxes. I use

> win.printer()
> myplot()
> dev.off()

At this point I get a dialogue box, which gets in the way when the above
is embedded in a loop. Ideally, I'd like to able to leave my
computation/plotting program alone and come back to find all the results
already printed out. I've read Chap 7 of Splus manual and find no clues.
Any suggestions would be greatfully appreciated.

If the solution is to abstain from using the command dev.off() until the
loop is exited, then would'nt memory limit the number of plots that could
have been made ?

I'm using Splus for windows 3.1.

Thanks for any suggestions,
