PROMPT [text]

text Specifies a new command prompt.

Prompt can be made up of normal characters and the following special codes:

$Q = (equal sign)
$$ $ (dollar sign)
$T Current time
$D Current date
$P Current drive and path
$V Windows version number
$N Current drive
$G > (greater-than sign)
$L prompt $$

see now you get a prompt that looks like $ used in UNIX

ps: my prompt displays anything typed after prompt as the new prompt!!
