OK, but that requires an X server running on your Windows system,

Do you mean the version of gnuplot compiled with the gnu tools?
In any case, I think we have a better solution now. You can use a
simple wrapper program like the one below to send messages to the
Windows binary of gnuplot (I've used the binary version of 3.6beta340
that's available on ftp.phys.soton.ac.uk on an NT system and it seems
to work fine).
To use the wrapper program, compile it and put it somewhere in your
path. Rename the binary file something like pipe-gnuplot.exe. Then
gnuplot_binary = "pipe-gnuplot /gnuplot/wgnuplot"
replacing /gnuplot/wgnuplot with the actual name of your real gnuplot
binary (it must not contain spaces, though, or you may need to do some
quoting, or you can just modify the default location in the wrapper
program and recompile it).
I will make a binary and some more complete instructions available
If there are any Windows programmers out there who can improve this
bit of code, please let me know!
main (int argc, char **argv)
char *real_gnuplot = "C:\\gnuplot\\wgnuplot.exe";
