I put this is .bashrc
# colors NC="$(tput sgr0)" RED="$(tput setaf 1)" GREEN="$(tput setaf 2)" # etc ... PS1="\[$BROWN\]\u \[$CYAN\]#\# \[$PINK_BLD\]!\!\[$NC\] \[$BLUE\]\W: \[$NC\]"
deepo #50 !545 ~: echo "This is an example what it will look like."
What is, and how do I use, the hash 50 indication?
There are many pages on how to do the PS1 (e.g., http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/howto-linux-unix-bash-shell-setup-prompt.html) but from fast searches of those I get only standard descriptions of the hash thing (in this case, "the command number of this command").
