I am trying to add the current time to my bash in Redhat. I'd like it to read:
[user@hostname 01:01:01 ~] and obviously be relative to when the bash prompt was placed there.
Any ideas if this is possible, and if so, how?
Did you try the PROMPT_COMMAND found here?
PROMPT_COMMAND="echo -n \[\$(date +%H:%M:%S)\]"
Bear in mind that it won't give the time stamp for the current command, but the one before.
