Does this answer you gnuplot question?

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.
