ipython, which I referred to before, comes with gnuplot integration, and it
includes enhancements to the default plot() command to ease up automatic eps
generation. If you say plot(x,y,filename='foo.eps'), you automatically get
eps output instead of on-screen display. There are examples in the manual,
and I can mail you more if you need. You can just browse the html manual on
the ipython.scipy.org site for a feel of how it works.
