( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

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 something...

some silly prompt#>tcsh some slightly different prompt>source ~hossman/.cshrc username@host:path>

The last prompt is because of htis line in my .cshrc file...

set prompt = "%m:%~%# " if (`whoami` != "hossman" ) then set prompt "%n@%m:%~%# " endif

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 used to)
  • 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)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
