Solaris Advanced User's Guide

Command Prompt

When you log in, the screen or window displays an initial prompt. The appearance of this prompt varies depending on the shell you are using and on how your system administrator originally set it up. Because the default command prompt for SunOS system software is the dollar sign ($), this prompt is used in most of the examples presented in this manual.

If you decide later that you want to change your command prompt, see Changing Your Command Prompt for instructions.
