Thanks a lot because it works with

But now I have this problem 

gnuplot> load 'power.p'
gnuplot> set terminal postscript enhanced color
gnuplot> set output ""
gnuplot> plot 
gnuplot> set terminal x11
gnuplot> set output

gnuplot> plot 
         line 0: function to plot expected

It plots one time and then I want the program to close the plot window and
do another iteration, then show a plot again, close it, another iteration,
What should I put in the "power.p" code? I've tried to put exit or close but
it doesn't close the plot window.

Thanks and Regards,
