Okay, adding the gnuplot to "bind Close 'exit gnuplot'" makes it work
In interactive mode, it works for me, as you described. I don't have a C#
compiler, but from gnuplot's point of view, there should be no difference
between what you're doing in C# to write to gnuplot's STDIN and:
echo bind Close 'exit gnuplot'; splot x+y; pause -1 | gnuplot.exe
And that works just fine for me. I can close the plot window with either
q or alt+F4 and I am returned to the command prompt.
If I add a print, e.g.:
echo bind Close 'exit gnuplot'; splot x+y; pause -1; print 'got this far' | gnuplot.exe
the print never happens, suggesting the binding is indeed working.
Even adding a "set terminal windows" does not change the behavior
(with alt+F4 since the windows terminal doesn't accept q to close).
I'm using a 64-bit OS (Windows 2003). I wouldn't expect that to matter,
as gnuplot is a 32-bit app regardless. I cannot duplicate what you're
