Description Takanori MATSUURA 2003-04-17 09:41:05 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030417

Description of problem:
In /etc/csh.cshrc, shell prompt is set to
    set prompt='[%n@%m %c]$ '
or
     set prompt=\[`id -nu`@`hostname -s`\]\$\

The symbol of "$" gives users the impression that bash is working.
So the symbol of "$" should be changed to "%".

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run (t)csh


Actual Results:  The symbol of the prompt is "$"

Expected Results:  The symbol of the prompt is "%"

Comment 1 Takanori MATSUURA 2004-06-07 11:53:43 UTC
Is this report silly?

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-06-07 15:08:53 UTC
It's been the way it is for so long that I'm not sure it's worth the
effort to change it.
