in reply to Interface to Gnuplot ?

Just write data to file and then pipe commands to gnuplot. Alternately, use octave's plotting interface which uses gnuplot though you can't access all functions of gnuplot easily this way, it's often easier.

Some other related nodes are Re^3: measuring IN/OUT traffic on your computer which shows an extract from a program I wrote that uses gnuplot to plot exactly this way; Re: Lapack, inline and Perl which shows a complete example to transfer numerical data to octave, you just have to change the octave commands to include a plot; and the thread Easy plotting ?.

Update 2008-01-29: see Plot a spiral with gnuplot.
