you can't plot the contents of variables by reading the variable
names from a file inside a plot command.
when reading from a file, the plot command expects numbers.
you may write the fit parameters to a file after each individual
fit and plot the data inside this file later.
before the first fit open a file to print the fit parameters into with
set print "some_filename"
after each fit, save the fit parameters (e.g. a and b) with
print a, b
after the fits are done you have a data file containing all the fit
parameters which you may plot
plot "some_filename" using 0:1
