Start export to PDF (deprecated)

PDF export is started with IQRoutputPDFstart. Then all graphical output goes to this PDF file. PDF export into this file is ended by IQRoutputPDFend. If the compliance mode is on (.COMPLIANCE_MODE is set to TRUE) then the exported PDF file is annotated by an additional log file. The name of the generated compliance log file is the same name as the text file name but with appended ".log". The extension for the exported text file will be kept unchanged in the exported log file name. In order for the log file generation to work the global variable "COMPLIANCE_MODE_SCRIPT_NAME" needs to be defined by the user and in each R script set to the name of the script.
