This should be feasible with any setup that uses terminal emulators
which have a facility to download files from the host (e.g. x/y/zmodem,
kermit). Of course the corresponding upload protocol needs to be
installed on the host as well. Using such a facility to download the
plotfile should also prevent any mangling of postscript commands
due to line wrapping etc.
