    Hi,
    I am not an advanced user in linux,
    I used fink to install the gnuplot version 4-2-5,
    everything was fine except for the tab autocompletion function that is usually available in linux systems.

    I then tried to use rlwrap -a[password] -c gnuplot with limited success, ( sometimes it works and sometimes it freezes gnuplot and causes my cpu temperature to jump ) i suspect it has to do with password for sudo user is not entered in the rlwrap -a option.

    Can someone help me with either the tab autocompletion problem, or give me some insight on how to use rlwrap without burning my cpu half of the time?

    -thanks!
    -Tang

    The autocomplete funtion depends on a library. The software can be built with or without it. If you really want it then you'll likely have to build from source.
