twtty Prompt

I initially wrote a prompt called "termwide" in response to Dan's complaint that having the $PWD in the prompt causes the prompt size to change drastically. "Termwide" is a two line prompt that stays the width of your term at all times, and puts the $PWD on the upper of two lines, so your prompt doesn't move around. It also left-truncates $PWD if it would otherwise have wrapped to the next line. This version is the same as "termwide," but adds tty information.

Code:

#     This is a variant on "termwide" that incorporates the tty number.

#     24 March 99 - use of sed with \{$cut\} where $cut is an integer
#     means that this probably now requires a GNU version of sed.

function prompt_command {

TERMWIDTH=${COLUMNS}

#   Calculate the width of the prompt:

hostnam=$(echo -n $HOSTNAME | sed -e "s/[\.].*//")
#   "whoami" and "pwd" include a trailing newline
usernam=$(whoami)
cur_tty=$(tty | sed -e "s/.*tty\(.*\)/\1/")
newPWD="${PWD}"
#   Add all the accessories below ...
let promptsize=$(echo -n "--(${usernam}@${hostnam}:${cur_tty})---(${PWD})--" \
                 | wc -c | tr -d " ")
let fillsize=${TERMWIDTH}-${promptsize}
fill=""
while [ "$fillsize" -gt "0" ] 
do 
    fill="${fill}-"
	let fillsize=${fillsize}-1
done

if [ "$fillsize" -lt "0" ]
then
   let cut=3-${fillsize}
	newPWD="...$(echo -n $PWD | sed -e "s/\(^.\{$cut\}\)\(.*\)/\2/")"
