I typed this at the terminal prompt:  export ASTERISK_PROMPT="%C31[%H]: "

Typing at the same place:  echo $TERM  returns xterm

And now I have colored prompts at the Asterisk command line, so I can
assure you it can work. Kind of cool, 14 years using Asterisk and
because of your question, I now have colored prompts.

Do I have to do something to make sure that ASTERISK_PROMPT lives
through a reboot?
