Use 'precmd' and 'postcmd' in tcsh
Authored by: liyanage on May 27, '02 03:44:22PM

Wow this stuff is awesome, exactly what I always wanted!!

I removed the date as I don't need that, but I prefer to see the "~" sign in place of my home directory in the path as that makes the string a bit shorter. So I changed the line to:

alias precmd 'echo -n "^[]0;${cwd}^G" | sed -e "s%$HOME%~%"'

I noticed however that sometimes newly opened terminal windows close again immediately. When that happens, I have to hit Cmd-n again, sometimes twice or three times... Anybode else seen this?
