I would like to see just the last two lines, the SWITCH line and then the prompt. I don't really care about reboot history, and it is a corporate host so there are some things I can't touch (like /etc/profile).
Regarding the $HISTFILE, this is my command history, which I want to preserve. I checked, and I'm sure it doesn't have anything to do with displaying the host's reboot history.
I did find another thread that asked the same exact question (see here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...istory-882493/
). I can follow through from there.
Thanks for the help. Going to resolve the thread.
