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:

~/Library/init/tcsh/aliases.mine

actually expands out to:

/Users/myName/Library/init/tcsh/aliases.mine

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
