gnuplot not linked against readline ?


While working with a debian testing machine, I recognized that most of the 
cursor keys don't work in gnuplot: home/end give me a 7~/8~, up/down does 
nothing and tab in filenames doesn't work either.

a "ldd /usr/bin/gnuplot" tells me, that gnuplot is not linked against 
libreadline, so it uses its own, quite limited "readline" functions.

I think, gnuplot is _very_ hard to handle like this. Is there a reason, 
why debians gnuplot is not linked against readline? I personally think, 
this is a bug...

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
