Generate a string to add a title to a plot


Generate a string that is intended to be eval'd that will add a title and sub-title to a plot. The string is a call to title, supplying the given arguments, pasted together, as the main title, and generating a sub-title that begins with ‘Rattle’ and continues with the current date and time, and finishes with the current user's username. This is used internally in Rattle to adorn a plot with relevant information, but may be useful outside of Rattle.
