A litte whitespace for shell prompt
Authored by: cfoster on Dec 05, '02 02:08:34PM

I've found very useful to add:

\n===== (60 of these) =======\n\n

before my other 'set prompt' details. It adds some whitespace around each shell command, making them much easier to differentiate. (I often find shell commands run together and I'm not sure where one starts and the next stops.)

Try it, you'll like it!
