That is not what I meant. Printing could still be done by an m-file
which comes/comes-not whith octave. 

Can I find out which terminal gnuplot is using?
If yes, that would be really easy.

The key thing is the parser line

function a b c 

should be the same as


Which means that I can call a function with some arguments in two ways.
-shell style

Matlab has that feature in 5.3. As far as I can see this kind 
is not used in octave right now, so it doesn't lead to incompatibility.

The key thing is that it is NOT possible to pass variables in the
All arguments are taken as strings.

See "load/save ...etc".
It is only a more general way of doing

load myfilename

That is what I meant you could add.
Would be nice to have. ;-)

I don't think that sould be a goal. But octave is so general
and cool that it shouldn't be a problem offering a braindead solution.
