The csh and bash config do use differnt "escape sequences"
for substitution, such as user name, host name, current
directory and "power" (root / non-root). In bash it is \,
in csh it is %.
You are right, "man bash" does list all the sequences,
as well as "man csh". For the standard prompt
user at host:~/my/path% _
those are the corresponding codes:
Meaning csh bash
-------------- ------ ------
user %n \u
host %m \h
path \w %~ (includes substitution ~)
prompt sign %# (# for root, % for non-root)
\$ (# for root, $ for non-root)
That's why I said csh's set prompt = "%n@%m:%~%# " equals
bash's export PS1="\u@\h:\w\$ ", because bash does have a
different default prompt (which might not be desired).
A literal % can be used for bash's PS1 setting if intended.
But it's okay to see $ for bash, and % for csh.
