Overwhelming acclaim. tcsh is a good thing. I haven't yet received my
copy of my posting to sun-managers and I've got 10 responses whole-
heartedly endorsing this csh replacement shell. It's got far too
many features for me to describe here. The latest release has a
12/19/91 issue date.

tcsh is available by anonymous ftp from
It is in the directory path pub/tcsh. You can't miss it.

Notes from our responders:

1) Since tcsh is normally stored in /usr/local/bin, don't make it the
   default shell for root. (prevents problems booting single-user).

2) Make sure you put an entry in /etc/shells. (prevents problems with ftp).
