I removed my Windows long ago, but I programmed a lot using emacs,
bash, ...
You have to use '/' in _all_ paths if you use UN*X based programs.  If
you really want to use a backslash in paths then you _must_ double it
like 'ŠÜŠÜ' because a single backslash is an escape character to
read/write the next character as is.
==>  ŠÜC  expands to C
     ŠÜŠÜ  expands to ŠÜ
==> Use:
    pl "C:/Cygwin/tmp/oct-1234"
Read the doc of 'bash' and you get more hints.  And the doc of
gnuplot, it uses '/' as path-delimiter too.
