GEPASI is one of the simulators for metabolic control analysis
available from the metabolic-regulation (BTK-MCA mailing list)
experimental archive site bmsdarwin.brookes.ac.uk ( in
/pub/software/ibmpc/gep207a.zip.  But I suspect you've got an old
version of windows gnuplot --- ours (3.38...) groks 'set terminal
windows color' or 'set term win col' no problem.

Sorry to hear you haven't got a reply from the author, Pedro Mendes
<prm at aber.ac.uk>, --- he must be away as he is usually very
conscientious about support.  Please feel free to ask me any further
questions until I can locate him.  We don't stock gnuplot on our
archive just yet --- I think ftp.dartmouth.edu is the official site.
