The Matlab-style plot commands should also work, because they are all
implemented in M-files using gplot commands.

This doesn't really work with Octave on other systems either, because
the communication with gnuplot is via a one-way pipe.  If you type
`gshow', the output from gnuplot is just send to stdout, which is
usually connected to the same terminal that Octave is running in, so
you can see the output.  But Octave isn't reading it, and it doesn't
go through the pager.

I suppose this could be fixed by creating a two-way stream for
communication between Octave and gnuplot, but I'm not sure it's really
worth the trouble.
