Configuration Files

Tcsh has two main configuration files either ~/.tcshrc or ~/.cshrc in addition to the ones provided by the operating system. It will source ~/.tcshrc first if it is found and if not then ~/.cshrc.

Please type man tcsh for a complete explanation of features or see the online TCSH documentation.

To change your shell, see shell

Paths

You can see your current paths (colon separated list) by the typing the following in your terminal.

 echo $PATH

You can add additional paths by using the following command

 setenv PATH ${PATH}:/my/new/path

By moving around the ${PATH} you can put the path at the front of the list or the back as the programs are looked up left to right in the path.
