Thanks a lot!

That's the solution!

If you just want to postprocess, then why not write your awk script as
a filter, then do something like

 gset output "| awk -f myscript.awk > foo.eps"

Does that work?  To get the output flushed to the pipe, you may have
to issue another "gset output" command or use closeplot.
