How can i make my shell prompt read:
<pwd>$ <time of day>
Put something like this in your .bashrc or .bash_profile (changed from yours, as I wasn't sure how that would make sense!)
export PS1="\t \w $ "
Personally, I use:
export PS1="\t@\d ─────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────\n│ \w \n└─> "
That might give you a hand getting things to look right.
Once you've added it to your .bashrc file, remember to run
source ~/.bashrc to make it work.
