or you can do it the Darwin way...

I would advise users to use ~/Library/init/tcsh/ - aka the configuration paths mentioned in an earlier article, and documented in /usr/share/init/tcsh/README.

I'm assuming I'm doing this the right way as I can't find any doc explaining exactly what you should be putting in files like ~/Library/init/tcsh/path, but this is what I've done, which works. the tcsh command to set path is something like:
set PATH = ($PATH /some/other/path)
set MANPATH = ($MANPATH /another/path/somewhere)
If you just stick commands like these in the path file, your values for $PATH, $MANPATH etc will be set.

now to hope that this gets displayed properly....


Here is the contents of my ~/Library/init/tcsh/path file, set up for running XFree86.



setenv PATH "${PATH}:/usr/X11R6/bin"
setenv MANPATH "${MANPATH}:/usr/X11R6/man:/usr/local/man"
