Hi Octavers!

This question is  more specific to Gnuplot, but  I hope that there  is
people in the list that can help me.

I want to take the output of the plots  of Octave and "edit" them with
xfig.  I looked up  in the man page  and  interactive help for Gnuplot
with no  success for a "xfig terminal"  BUT... yesterday,  I found the
following in the "help set size" of Gnuplot:

It seems to me that this  "Fig" and "bfig"  terminals to whom the help
section makes reference are related to xfig.

Does anyone  know  something  about this,  or   another way  to handle
Gnuplot output with xfig?
