    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?

    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.
