It seems like it will work under X11 systems (which I can vouch for).
- Function File:  figure (N)
     Set the current plot window to plot window N.  This function
     currently requires X11 and a version of gnuplot that supports
     multiple frames.

You can access GNU-plot directly using the 'gset' and 'gshow' and
... commands. this is really usefull for altering the key location in
plots, resizing, ploting to jpg / GIF files .... etc.
