How to Display Some Info in AIX Prompt

  • by

By default, there's little information in prompt for a new user. Usually, I changed the prompt into this:

$ vi ~/.profile
...
export PS1=$USER@`hostname -s`:'$PWD>'

To make it take effect immediately, we can do this:

$ . ~/.profile
oracle@boston:/home/oracle>
