This web page is a child of the Bash Prompt HOWTO that I'm maintaining for the Linux Documentation Project . The HOWTO explains a lot more than I'm going to here. My interest in Bash Prompts developed when I found "The BashPrompt Themes Project (now long deceased). Some of their prompts show up here, and a lot of what I've done shows the influence of their work. I started these pages because so many people have been mailing me cool prompts that I couldn't see putting them all in the HOWTO as examples, but I thought they ought to be available to give other people ideas. And it gives me an opportunity to show off some of mine.
