gnuplot commands in octave

I'm not exactly sure what the relationship is between gnuplot and octave,
but I've noticed that most of the syntax is similar.

So my general question is: 
Is there a way to run some gnuplot code from within octave?

As an example I want to run this bit of gnuplot code:
gnuplot> gauss1(x) = A1*exp( -((x-x1)/sig1)**2 )
gnuplot> FIT_LIMIT = 1e-6 
gnuplot> fit gauss1(x) 'mydata.txt' using 1:2 via A1,x1,sig1
gnuplot> plot 'mydata.txt', gauss1(x)

Basically I'd like to use the 'fit' command from gnuplot, as I still haven't
managed to find a simple way to fit a gaussian (or any other user defined
function) with octave, but if there is a more general solution that allows
me to run any bit of gnuplot code within octave then that would be best.
