I's all in the subject. I use a (long) line from the data file as title, and Gnuplot doesn't wrap it.

Any hints appreciated.

This question came from our site for users of TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, and related typesetting systems.

Would you please add an example? –  egreg Jul 10 '12 at 8:41
At the moment, this sounds like it's not related to (La)TeX at all. Could you specify how the question is relevant to the site? –  Jake Jul 10 '12 at 8:45
@Jake: oops, this sounds like you're right ! how to remove this question ? Where does it belong ? StackOverflow ? –  ExpertNoob Jul 11 '12 at 17:22
Use \n; thus set title "this is a\n two line title". –  Ian Thompson Jul 12 '12 at 22:37
@Jake: thanks. Yes I'm looking for automatic wrapping. I don't know the length of the line in advance (or even it's contents). So, Ian, I wouldn't know where to put the \n ! An example : plot sin(x) with title = "ExpertNoob " 15 times ! –  ExpertNoob Jul 13 '12 at 10:00
