Due to this article http://www.linux.com/article.pl?sid=06/04/11/2112243 about
CD freshness I installed gnuplot. But it does not appear to work. Am I
doing something wrong, or is it does plain broken??

on101:/usr/share/doc/packages/gnuplot/demo>
gnuplot /usr/share/doc/packages/gnuplot/demo/battery.dat

gnuplot> 50.000000 0.036990 2.500000 0.007039
^
"/usr/share/doc/packages/gnuplot/demo/battery.dat", line 4: invalid
command

The 4th line in the data file is just the 1st datafile:
demo> head /usr/share/doc/packages/gnuplot/demo/battery.dat

50.000000 0.036990 2.500000 0.007039


and the --help says:
demo> gnuplot --help
Usage: gnuplot [OPTION]... [FILE]

Looks to me it is broken....
