about gnuplot or matlab
How can I use gnuplo or matlab to plot a binary format data file?
Any help would be great except saying look at gunplot manual, I already did that. 
Re: about gnuplot or matlab
I dont't think gnuplot can handle binary files. (I've just checked in te manual)
You will need to write a simple driver that read the binary format and translate it into ascii. (This is very easy in C or C++). As for MATLAB, I've never used it and I can't help you.

Matlab uses the fread and fwrite command to read and write binary files.

I can't comment on gnuplot, but if you can program in C, you can easily get binary data into MATLAB for plotting.
MATLAB provides fopen, fread, fwrite and other Clike I/O library functions  these are OK for small(ish) amounts of data. If you want to do serious binary data import, you can write what MATLAB calls a MEX file. This is your own C code, wrapped by a MATLAB gateway function that allows you to read the data yourself, manipulate it and import it directly as a MATLAB variable. Once you've written your MEX file, using it is really easy. E.g. >> x=read_my_data('filename'); :> plot(x(:,1),x(:,2));
