GNUPlotScaling

Craig Earls
The GNUPlot documentation sys getting matching scale factors is
difficult. This issince GNUplot aims at having the maximum extent of the
plot inside a certain bousing box, i.e. all the axis, title and label
stuff inside the bounding box, and this bounding box is what is
controlled by 'set scale', I attempted this a while ago and decided that
I wasn't confident enough that it was actually going to work correctly
and stopped trying. (I was trying to output a scaled airfoil profile)

BTW, is there a way to know the aspect ratio of the gnuplot window?  I
want  to have the same scale  factor in both  axis, since I'm plotting
finite element meshes, and similar things. In Matlab 3.5 for DOS there
was the axis('square') feature.
