and to answer your next question as well, here's a not-so-random
signature tip from my growing collection... see below.
to test it, try
$ echo "\e]0;Here We Go^V^Ga-carolling"
and your xterm/rxvt title bar will now be entitled "Here We Go"
(unless it's overwritten by another instance, such as a command
prompt as mentioned below)...
DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #28 from Will Trillich <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Would you like to have rxvt show you useful information in the
TITLE BAR of its X window? For example, to see your "present
working directory" in the title bar, include this in your bash
command prompt string:
export PS1="\e]0;\w^G\u@\h$ "
Anything between the "\e]0;" and the control-G will be displayed
as the title of the rxvt window. (In editors, you may need to
precede the ^G with ^V.)
