I don't think this can be done with gnuplot.  Due to gnuplot's details, the
MATLAB/Octave plotting commands are not compatible, e.g.,

    plot(x,y,'-', ...);   % This must go first
    xlabel('X value')
    ylabel('Y value')
    legend('Item 1', 'Item 2', ...)

    xlabel("X value");
    ylabel("Y value");
    plot(x,y,"-;Item 1;", ...)   # this must go last, or use replot() after
                                 # xlabel, etc.)

Octave is as MATLAB compatible as practical, but is not a MATLAB clone.
