Thanks Artur for this excellent example. I will also add a relevant 
comment to the feature request 64 on the sourceforge tracker 

And here's a slightly modified example where both lines are dashed, and 
also it shows that you can have color as well (I think that wasn't so 
clear in previous gnuplot versions):

open denmark.gdt --quiet
list Lplot = LRM LRY
plot Lplot
         options with-lines time-series
         literal set linetype 1 dashtype 2
         literal set linetype 2 dashtype 2
         # literal set mono
end plot --output=display
