Save R Plot in EPS format

Here is a code example of how to save an R plot in EPS (instead of PS):
postscript(file="testplot.eps",
paper="special",
width=10,
height=10,
horizontal=FALSE)

yvalues = runif(50)
plot(yvalues)

dev.off()
The variation is adding paper="special" and horizontal=FALSE.

Nice, many thanks for the useful post when I needed a quick example. setEPS() before the plot also works great to preset the right options for postscript() - thanks Ryan for the comment.
