I've gotten in the habit of running the following whenever
I log into an account that isn't mine, or
sit down at someone elses terminal to help them with
some silly prompt#>tcsh
some slightly different prompt>source ~hossman/.cshrc
The last prompt is because of htis line in my .cshrc file...
set prompt = "%m:%~%# "
if (`whoami` != "hossman" ) then
set prompt "%n@%m:%~%# "
why do i do this you ask?
- I allways know exactly what my PATH, and all of my
other environment settings are (they're what I'm allways
- I allways know exactly what directory I'm in
(in the prompt)
- I allways know exactly who I am (if i'm not me,
it says so in my prompt)
