Projects / tcshrc


The tcshrc package provides a well-organised set of configuration files that make full use of the advanced and often unknown features of the tcsh shell. Features used are a comprehensive prompt setting, advanced "set"s and "alias"es, bindkey support for the function keys, and intelligent completion. A Makefile is included for a safe installation procedure.
