The pop-up window for format information is incorrect when compared to
functionality and the documentation at
This document, however, does not mention %$ which shows the process id, it
%a (and as a result, %A) fails to properly display argv in at least two
- no space exists between argv and argv
- all string processing stops if a “@” character is seen.
if I run “ssh firstname.lastname@example.org command-to-run command-args” in pterm, and
my title is “%A” (or “%0 %a”), the displayed title is:
ssh logincommand-to-run command-args
ssh email@example.com command-to-run command-args
argv and beyond do not have the “@” problem.
