If you want to see what commands Octave is sending to gnuplot try

  gnuplot_binary = "tee /tmp/some-file | gnuplot"

before any plot commands, then Octave will send the plot commands to
/tmp/some-file and gnuplot.  When you are done with your plotting
commands, you can look at /tmp/some-file and see what commands were
sent to gnuplot.
