I just discovered "Prowl" for the iphone and also growl notify.

so my question is...is it possible to run a terminal command inside of a command.

for example. growlnotify -m date "+%A, %B %d"

and have it execute the date part before the growlnotify therefore displaying the current date in the growl message.

thanks

You should be able to backtick the date command and get it going:
growlnotify -m "`date "+%A, %B %d"` here is the rest of the message"
