Jim, thanks for this. Lets assume I want to implement some 'clone' function of the print command that allows working with multiplot using __gnuplot_***__ commands. Then, before a '__gnuplot_set__ term ps' command, the function should find out the current terminal, so that after 'replotting' the plot to a file, the terminal type can be reset to what it was before. I played with __gnuplot_show__ , but couldn't make it work. Any ideas on how to get the current terminal type?

how do you save plots using octave??

Use the 'print' command. Type 'help print' at the Octave prompt.

Unfortunately, in some circumstances the print command fails; in particular
when the multiplot features of gnuplot are in use.

In this case (and in all cases actually), your approach is still sound, it just
needs a little modification.

Replace "set" with "__gnuplot_set__", and you should be good to go. It used to be "gset", and you can still use that, but it is deprecated and may disappear in future versions of octave. "__gnuplot_set__" should be around until octave has an integrated whiz-bang graphics system, and no longer requires sending
gnuplot commands directly from the octave command line.
