I'm new to Linux. I installed Haskell and was going through a tutorial, which showed me I can :set prompt "ghci> " to change the prompt. I like the way this looks. How can I make it so that Haskell uses this prompt by default, so I don't have to set it to be that every time?

add :set prompt "ghci> " to ~/.ghci
