What about the system command. Does it work in a sub-shell
or does it work in the current shell?
If it works in the current shell we could submit a "scrip" (typescript)
and reread it.

Why not implementing a two way connection and making gnuplots
output available for octave.
Would have nice features for other things too.
The simpliest way would be to pipe gnuplots
stdout/stderr through "|tee" and reread the tee-file
if requested.
