Yep, you have to open a link to gnuplot

File *fp;

fp = popen("gnuplot","w");

then somebody posted recently that you can plot data
stored in x[] and y[] arrays (up to index N-1) like so

         fprint(fp, "plot \"-\"\n");
         for (i=0; i<N; i++)
                fprintf(fp, "%f %f\n", x[i], y[i]);
         fprintf(fp, "e\n");

Although I usually dump to a file and then just plot

        fprintf(fp, "plot 'file.dat' u 1:2\n")

were file.dat is were I usually dump data for example.

when your done, just close gnuplot by using

Does that answer your question?

You can control the size of the plotting using xrange
and yrange, which gives you the limits, or bounds, of
your plot. And if you want them to look the same then
you can use set xtics to put the tics where you want,
and also whatever you want. For example....

set xrange[0:10]
set yrange[0:10]
set xtics ("low" 0, "medium" 5, "high" 10)

Set size only changes the size of the graph relative
to the paper, for example if you want to try and make
it look square or something. Hope this helps.....
