Title your Terminal
If you launch the Terminal with the -t flag, you can assign a custom name to its title bar. For instance, type
Terminal -t "HappyTerm"
and you’ll get a new Terminal window called Happy Term, rather than the default name “Terminal 2.”
You can also change the title of the currently running terminal with the following sequence:
$ /bin/echo '33]2;My Term07'
Because this is a somewhat hairy sequence, you probably won’t want to type it in with any regularity. In that case, make the above into a little shell script. Save the brief script below in /boot/home/config/bin as a file called “term”
echo -e "33]2;$107"
You’ll then be able to type:
term "My Term" at any prompt to change the title of the currently running terminal.

The command from this tip wasn’t correctly quoted, so it didn’t make it through the HTML system. The correct command is below:
echo -en '\\033]2;TextInTitle\\007'
