What is TCSH TCSH is an enhanced but completely compatible version
of the Berkeley UNIX C shell. It is a command language interpreter usable
both as an interactive login shell and a shell script command processor.
It includes a command-line editor, programmable word completion, spelling
correction, a history mechanism and job control.
How much TCSH configuration, can TDG manage?
First of all, the TCSH module will help you see configurations, which you
would never had discovered, unless you've read the manual page (approx 80
Second the TCSH module will help you set up user defined completions, and
the command line editor. Two things, which often are very difficult and
time consuming for the beginner.
Things, which TDG can not do TCSH is a programming language with
conditional statements. This TDG cannot handle. This means that if you
have one setup on one computer, and and other setup on another, you will be
in trouble. But that sort of problems can almost always be solved by
moving the particular configuration outside TDG and then sourcing the
output from TDG in the original .tcshrc file.
If you however find a configuration in TCSH, which is not present in TDG,
please let me know, as I've put a lot of work in making it as complete as
