Re: xterm&title

Hello Peter, HelloPaolo
Thanks for replying

I have been using about the same escape sequence (except in tcsh....)
In my .tcshrc...

switch ($TERM)
    case "{xterm*,rxvt*}":
         alias periodic 'echo -n "\033]0;${USER}@${HOST}       `date +%A\
\[%d\]\ \ %B`\007"'
        set prompt="%n:%c03%#"
        set prompt="%n:%c4%#"

the problem......
Telneting to debian machine seems to work fine
But under other OS (still xterm terminal not dtterm or any other) the shell
just change the prompt to
\033]0;my-logname@host-machine       Wednesday [05]   April \007>
I cant figure out if the problem is on the escape sequence, the xterm
version, or the echo command?
I have try all the combinations of /bin/echo, builtin echo, and the argg -n
, -n -e
Any idea??

Peter: The relative HOWTO claims tha the same espace sequence works with
dtterm to.Well ..i had the same problem.(Solaris 7 sun4u)
