    I am using RedHat 7.2 and when I run gnuplot in the xterm the gnuplot just quit's by it self.

    Should I set some variable at the make process to fix this problem.

      I don't think anybody else ever saw this problem before. You had better post this as a bug report.  And be sure to include sufficiently detailed information.  The "show version long" output of your gnulot would be good to see, e.g.

        I am quite new at the sourceforge and I don't know how to report a bug.

        But ok, I use :

            Version 3.8i patchlevel 0
            last modified Wed Feb 13 18:22:43 GMT 2002
            System: Linux 2.4.7-10

        and when I resize the xterm the gnuplot just closes and without any messages (It just closes).

        Thank you for your help

      This doesn't happen on other platforms, nor have we ever had reports from anybody else reporting such problems.  But as you didn't show the output of
      "show version long" which I asked for, it's hard to be more specific.

      The particularly important bits would be:

      1) the type of readline support you compiled into that binary: GNU libreadline, or gnuplot's own?

      2) If GNU readline: what version of it?

        Ok now I found out what you have meant with "show version long".
        The output is:

            G N U P L O T
            Version 3.8i patchlevel 0
            last modified Wed Feb 13 18:22:43 GMT 2002
            System: Linux 2.4.7-10

        Compile options:
        -READLINE  +LIBREADLINE  -HISTORY  -LIBGD  +LIBPNG  -NOCWDRC  +X11  +USE_MOUSE 

        DRIVER_DIR   = "/usr/local/lib/gnuplot/3.8i"
        HELPFILE     = "/usr/local/share/gnuplot.gih"
        CONTACT      = <info-gnuplot-beta@dartmouth.edu>
        HELPMAIL     = <info-gnuplot-beta@dartmouth.edu>

        I used the gnu-readline (as you suggested) in one message some weeks ago. Then the problems with the input dissapired.

        The version of the gnu-readline is 4.2 (a guess that is it from the "ls -l" output: /usr/lib/libreadline.so -> libreadline.so.4.2)

          I don't know what the problem is.  Please send the last couple of hundred lines output from reproducing this problem while running gnuplot in 'strace':

              strace -o strace.output gnuplot

          to gnuplot-betat, as a bug report.
