I have a function in my bashrc that I want to rename a xterm's icon title to the name of a machine I am telnetting into. So I do the following
source /bin/title $1;
where /bin/title will change the name. But the problem is the icon name dosent change until I quit the telnet session. Is there a way to force the env veriable and PS1 to be updated before calling telnet $1?
