Hi,
when larger sets of EPS pictures are generated via gnuplot and tracked by some VCS like subversion or git most of the files have only Date change like:
+%%CreationDate: Fri Feb 4 02:23:52 2011
+ /CreationDate (Fri Feb 4 02:23:52 2011)

this leads to big commits where the real changes are not seen because of the cruft all around.
it would be cool if there was possibility to either disable this comment or set it on a single value inside script...

thanks for consideration

    How about:
    set term post eps
    set output "| sed 's/^.*CreationDate.*$//' > graph.eps"
