How to make my bash prompt display something at the end of the line (with the cursor positioned as usual at the beginning of the same line)? Specifically I want to display an abbreviated single character prompt such as
> after which I can type my command. But I want to be able to see the current working directory at the end of the line, where it is not "in my face".
I don't care what happens when I type a really long command. It can overwrite the current working directory or whatever else my prompt displays there.
Alternately I don't mind if the prompt causes the current working directory to show at the top right or top left, or bottom right/left of the screen. I just don't want it in my face at all times but I want it to be visible.
