gshow key

Is there any way to record in an Octave variable the current state of
gnuplot's key variable?   I would like to do the following in a script:

record key state;
make key state what I need for next plot;
restore old key state;  

My first attempt looked like this:
octave:13> key_state = eval("gshow key")
error: value on right hand side of assignment is undefined
error: evaluating assignment expression near line 13, column 11

        key is ON, position: top right corner
        key is right justified, not reversed and not boxed
        sample length is 4 characters
        vertical spacing is 1 characters
        width adjustment is 0 characters
        key title is ""

octave:13> key_state
error: `key_state' undefined near line 13 column 1
