Problems about gnuplot


When I type special keys like 'End', 'Home', 'Delete', in gnuplot, they don't perform the correspoding functions. Instead it gives me 'F', 'H', and '3~' repectively. Besides, when I type 'Tab' in the load command, it does not respond at all, but I think it should work like it does in normal bash.

Another question which has nothing to do with gnuplot. In my Linux shell, I see something like:

user@hostname:~$

while in ther computers, I see:

user@hostname:~>

What is the difference?

Does this answer you gnuplot question?

http://www.gnuplot.info/docs/node47.html

For the command prompt, the format is set in the .bashrc file in your home directory by the value of the environment variables PS1 and PS2 (PS for 'Prompt String').

Search for PROMPTING in the bash man page if you want to know all the arcane details, or google 'bash tutorial' for more detail.
