Wrong file name & location.
Authored by: Anonymous on Mar 31, '01 02:53:22AM

Indeed you can create a file called ".tcshrc" in your home directory... but that is a very Unixy way. Reading the instructions from the Global alias file, the directory that I mentioned in the article is the preferred method (I guess they don't want you to litter your home directory with "." files?). Perhaps something that I didn't make clear in the article (read: I forgot to mention :-) is the meaning of the '~' in the path. It basically translates to you home folder, ie. the file path ends up as:


actually expands out to:


That definately works, my machine is configured to that exactly. Again either location and file name is correct and will get you aliases working. Hope you are enjoying the shortcuts :)

Sorry for the confusion
