OK. Octave generates a temporary file name for saving the data. I'm
not sure what format those strings will have on your system, but I
suspect that the bug is not in Octave.
If you want to see exactly what plot commands are sent to gnuplot, set
gnuplot_binary to be "/bin/cat". For example, on my system, it looks like
this:
octave:1> gnuplot_binary = "/bin/cat"
gnuplot_binary = /bin/cat
octave:2> a = 1:100; gplot(a')
octave:3> set data style lines
pl "/tmp/oct-14102aaa" t "line 1"
Does Octave on your system behave the same way, or does the temporary
file name already contain c:ÜcygwinÜ, or does it look like c:cygwin at
this point?
