Firstly, I must congratulates all the people working on NetBSD,
I have installed NetBSD 1.1 (Amiga, plus X11R6), and I must say
that it was a lot easier to install than I anticipated.
Thank you all.
My little problem:
I am using csh as shell, and I can't get the current directory
to appear in my prompt. I tried a few things:
set prompt=`pwd`, including various mixes of ' " and `
also: PS1=`pwd`; export PS1, plus a few other variations of
Some of them give me the current dir at the time the variable
is set, but if I "cd" somewhere else, the directory in the
prompt doesn't change.
What is the proper to get the current directory in the csh
Shell's prompt of NetBSD?
Many thanks in advance for your help.
