Is it possible by adding literal gnuplot commands? If so, then I
think it's not necessary. I mean, otherwise we also would have to
talk about specification of ranges and so on.
I don't think it would work, to try to force axis changes via
A gretl-generated gnuplot file starts with a bunch of "set" commands
that influence title, legend placement, axis labels, line colors and
so on, and then has a "plot" section which specifies what data are
to be plotted and how.
We stick user-supplied literals (if any) in the middle, so they can
supplement or override the initial "set" commands, but they're not
going to modify the actual "plot" directive. In some cases you might
get lucky by inserting a "plot" line of your own, but the effect is
in general unpredictable and is in no way guaranteed.
