1.14.1.54 system

‘system("command")‘ executes "command" using the standard shell and returns the resulting character stream from stdout as string variable. One optional trailing newline is ignored.

This can be used to import external functions into gnuplot scripts using ’f(x) = real(system(sprintf("somecommand %f", x)))’.
