I had to do something similar in prompt_bart_setup, and ended up with


The (f) and [1] are because of the multi-line PS1, where it computes the
length only of the first line.  The above works as long as you don't
have other prompt escapes inside the %{ %}.  Hmm.  Perhaps this:


Looking at prompt_adam2_precmd, it does exactly what prompt_bart_precmd
does: compute a padding width by subtracting from $COLUMNS.  With the
above expression you can get rid of prompt_line_1[ab]_no_color entirely:

	prompt_padding_size=$(( COLUMNS
		- ${#${(%%)${prompt_line_1a//[%]\{([^%]|%[^\}])#%\}/}}}
		- ${#${(%%)${prompt_line_1b//[%]\{([^%]|%[^\}])#%\}/}}} ))

Which also, as Sven mentioned, gets rid of $(print -P ...).
