Hello, I have reinstalled my gnuplot except now it gives me a timeout error = as=20 such u=3D1:200; y=3D2*u+1 plot(y,x) Timeout: gnuplot not ready I reinstalled my gnuplot using,the following method, downloading the= =20 following file gp400win32.zip; Adding the following lines to file 'octaverc' gnuplot_binary =3D "c:/gnuplot/bin/pgnuplot"=20 putenv('TMPDIR','c:/cygwin/tmp')=20 gnuplot_has_multiplot =3D 1=20 The gnuplot window does come up, but no graphs are plotted. I'm findi= ng=20 my octave very unpredictable, with different errors arising every tim= e=20 I invoke it. Any ideas??

I haven't ever so smuch as seen octave's interface to gnuplot, which makes it hard, if not impossible, to guess what this interface may be doing wrong... What are the gnuplot commands generated by your set of octave commands?
