Ok.  Thanks for that clarification.

Looking into this, it seems that we don't have any 'paint' program in Cygwin,
which would be the standard thing to paste an image into. (although you could
try e.g. GIMP from Cygwinports.)

Depending on what you are trying to do, you might find it easier to plot to a
.png file from gnuplot and then include that file where needed.
