[rrd-users] rrdtool graph confusion

I'm having 2 issues with the rrdtool graph command.
1st I can't seem to get the new line command to work, this is what I
have in my code 'GPRINT:avgN:"Avg %6.2lf%%\n"', and when graphed the /n
gives a character that look like a box ,, and I don't know how to deal
2nd I'm trying to comment the current date at the bottom of my graph but
am so far unsuccessful. I've tried COMMENT:"%m/%d/%Y %H\:%M\:%S", and
I tried declaring cur_date = '%m/%d/%Y %H\:%M\:%S' and then commenting
cur_date COMMENT:"' + cur_date + '" and neither are working for me. I
get the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "cpu_usage.py", line 78, in ?
' COMMENT:"' + cur_date + '"')
rrdtool.error: Could not make sense out of ' COMMENT:"%m/%d/%Y %H\:%M\:%S"'
I'm probably missing something very basic (oh and I'm using python so
thats why everything is being passed as a string)
Thanks for all your help so far, I've really appreciated it!!!
