Parametric plots

Hi. I'm sorry if this is a FAQ. In gnuplot, parametric plots (in 2D) are accomplished by, e.g.,

   gnuplot> plot [t=0:2] t**2 - t - 1, sin (2*pi*t)

but I couldn't do the same in Octave using "gset parametric" and "gplot":

octave:1> gset parametric
octave:2> gplot [t=0:2] t**2 - t - 1, sin (2*pi*t)
parse error:

>>> gplot [t=0:2] t**2 - t - 1, sin (2*pi*t)

octave:2> gplot [t=0:2] "t**2 - t - 1, sin (2*pi*t)"
warning: can't make 2D parametric plot -- setting noparametric...
         line 0: undefined variable: t


How do I plot parametric equations in Octave?  Thanks.
