Mumit's patch for gnuplot allows it to read commands from the standard
input if it is invoked with the command-line option `-stdin'.  His
README file suggests using a shell script, but I think it is
sufficient to set Octave's built-in variable gnuplot_binary to
"gnuplot -stdin" (or "wgnupl32 -stdin", if you installed your gnuplot
binary with that name instead of gnuplot).
