New Video on Bash Escape Sequences
By Erik Letson, Aug 17th, 2020 (blog index)
I have a new video out on Youtube. It covers using escape sequences in bash specifically to customize your $PS1 prompt. I have found that there are quite a few people using programs that generate custom prompts, or using ones they find online, without really being able to read the arcane and complex-looking raw string that makes up a cusomized $PS1. Hopefully this video will be able to shed some light on the subject for some folks!
