3.29 system

‘system "command"‘ executes "command" using the standard shell. See shell. If called as a function, ‘system("command")‘ returns the resulting character stream from stdout as a string. One optional trailing newline is ignored.

This can be used to import external functions into gnuplot scripts:

      f(x) = real(system(sprintf("somecommand %f", x)))
