I've built gnuplot for my Mac (via Fink) but I'm having trouble working out what's wrong with the below (highlighted) so all help appreciated.
gnuplot> show format
tic format is:
y-axis: "% g"
x2-axis: "% g"
y2-axis: "% g"
z-axis: "% g"
cb-axis: "% g"
gnuplot> set format x "%D"
gnuplot> plot 'data.txt' u 1:2 w linespoints
Bad format character
gnuplot> show version

What's wrong is that you're trying to use a format string only usable
for time/date axes without switching that axis to time/date format.
See "help set xdata"

That's quite old. We're at version 4.4 patchlevel 2 by now.
