HELP! Where to get TCSH 6.06?

HELP! Where to get TCSH 6.06?

Post by Goh Chee Kia » Tue, 16 Jan 1996 04:00:00

Good day ..

We have been stuck tcsh 6.04 for quite a while .. ( some how, 6.05 took
an exceptionally long time to start up as a shell in my system.. so most
of us uses 6.04.. ) I tried the site but there were no

Is there other sites which contain the latest tcsh files ?

Any pointer is very much appreciated.

1. Tcsh 6.06: Ctrl-C does not exit login script


I have a login script that looks like this:

if ( `tty` == "/dev/console" ) then
  if ( $TERM == "sun" || $TERM == "AT386" ) then

    if ( ${?OPENWINHOME} == 0 ) then        
        setenv OPENWINHOME /usr/openwin

    echo ""
    echo -n "Starting OpenWindows in 5 seconds (type Control-C to interrupt)"
    sleep 5
    echo ""
    clear           # get rid of annoying cursor rectangle
    logout         # logout after leaving windows system

  cat /etc/motd

If I use the Sun-provided csh, hitting Crtl-C brings me to my prompt.  But
with tcsh 6.06, I get logged out of the system.  I think I have to hit the
Ctrl-C twice real fast for it to work.  If I comment out the "logout" command,
I can return to my prompt.

My question is, which behavior is correct, Sun's csh or tcsh?  I think csh is
behaving properly.  Can someone explain to me how I can get the same behavior
from tcsh?

Thank you for any/all reponses.
