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 pages) 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 possible.
