How to display an EMF/WMF ? [R for BE/BA]

Hi all,

I am fiddling around with some plots related to BE evaluation and I am facing the following issue. I use syntax like:
win.metafile("Fooo.wmf", width = 6, height =4.5)
#some code here for the plot routs
dev.off()


, after which I do scripted stuff on Fooo.wmf.
All this is automated at a grandiose level.

After some additional processing steps I may want to pull up some of the files like Fooo.wmf to the screen for quick eyeballing and nothing else.
This seems to be very difficult. R allows me create a plot, save a plot as wmf/emf, but not view a plot saved this way?
I do not know at the time of creation if the plot is a candidate for on-screen viewing, this is a little depending on all the other processes.

Do you experts have a suggestion on how to pull up a wmf/emf, preferably one which does not involve installation of 200 different packages, and preferably one which does not involve me to change graphics format?

I think I may be able to spawn a new process like e.g. a browser and use that filename as an argument, this would likely work in Firefox etc, but it seems very clumsy.

Many thanks.

Le tits now.

Best regards,
ElMaestro
