Have idea for titlebar tweak -- need help with syntax
Fri Sep 24 10:16:00 GMT 2010
I'd like my terminal title bar to show my current working directory, the
running process (with a fall-back to the active shell when idle) and the
I have an old .bashrc file in which I collected code for the middle bit
(running process), but putting the three together and making them work
regardless of $TERM type is a challenge that's more than a little
'beyond my ken.' Nevertheless, as I think it would look great and be
sufficiently informative at the same time, I'd like to pursue it.
I haven't given up totally on rxvt: mintty has more than a few
shortcomings imo, but I suspect a large part of that is that I'm not
used to using an xterm variant outside of X or GNOME. Anyway, all of
that is for another email.
Where it meets at odd angles with this idea, is in that I suspect if I
start with "tweaked" xterm settings that check out in rxvt, the strictly
X syntax will work in mintty. In a sense, by going that route, I'll be
'ahead of the game' instead of 'trying to catch up.'
Any help in this regard would be much appreciated.
