explore man tcsh
Authored by: lavacano on May 18, '02 02:55:53AM

using some ideas from this hint, and some from previous hints, I set my prompt to look like this:

>>> (05/18/02 6:35:13am) [user@host]
current path
prompt (%, #)

All color coded of coarse.

set prompt="\n%{\033[1;31m%}>>> (%{\033[34m%}%W/%D/%y} %{\033[0m%}%p%{\033[1;31m%}) [%{\033[0m%}%n%{\033[1;31m%}@%{\033[36m%}%M%{\033[1;31m%}]\n%{\033[1;37m%}%~\n%{\033[0m%}%# "

I find, to my tastes, this prompt looks the best with the colors from the SGI-ish theme for GLTerm (Blueish back, yellow text, blue cursor, purple selection) with heavier than average translucency, as the colors are easy to differentiate between.
