To .cshrc or .tcshrc?
Authored by: digitalee on Apr 09, '02 06:27:06PM

I was eventually able to get a recognition of the tweak (everything in your instructions responded as stated) but no noticeable difference yet in emacs or lynx.

I'm a little confused...I've seen references in the past to setting up a .csrhc & other times a .tcshrc. Is one an MOSX standard and will either/or both suffice?

Thanks for the tip!

I may have got it...but not as root user?

Incidently, when I try this for the root user I get the following error message:

emacs: Terminal type vt100-color is not defined.
If that is not the actual type of terminal you have,
use the Bourne shell command `TERM=... export TERM' (C-shell:
`setenv TERM ...') to specify the correct type. It may be necessary
to do `unset TERMCAP' (C-shell: `unsetenv TERMCAP') as well.

I followed the same procedure as for my regular login, all while sudoed into root, except put the files in /private/var/root ...

Am I missing something here?

Thanks much.

if it's the "MOSX standard" that you're looking for, take a look at /usr/share/init/tcsh/README... That's how the default shell is set up to work: do your customizations in ~/Library/init/tcsh/.
