Hi Markus, Thanks for the clear definitive answer.

Unfortunately, as the other ways produce a second window when launched
from and existing commandline window they are not a solution for me
because my user workflow runs in a windows commandline window, and the
user needs to see the output of his commands (some of which use
Octave) in the window.
I switched to qt from gnuplot as recommended a few months ago on this
list because in 5.2.0, gnuplot and fltk both produce warning messages
as shown in the following output:
--------------------------
octave:4> plottest
Plot a graph using gnuplot
DEBUG: FC_WEIGHT didn't match
Elapsed time is 1.02322 seconds.
Graph plotted
octave:5> plottest
Plot a graph using fltk
DEBUG: FC_WEIGHT didn't match
Elapsed time is 1.0631 seconds.
Graph plotted
--------------------------
Given the choice between staying on 4.4.1 and using Qt vs moving to
5.2.0 and getting spurious DEBUG: messages I will go with the second
choice and tell users to ignore the messages.
Will octave-cli.exe at some point be linked against Qt?
Cheers... Ian
