How to make a global cshrc on Solaris

How to make a global cshrc on Solaris

Post by Jesse Flore » Tue, 14 Mar 2000 04:00:00


I already read through the FAQ stuff--but it was general.  I think it
said it
depended on your UNIX OS.  This question is specific to Solaris.

I can add "limit descriptors 256" to ~/.cshrc but want this to work
for everyone logging into the system.  I tried to modify /etc/login
to no avail.

I saw a reference to /etc/cshrc, something I had not heard about.
But creating an /etc/cshrc does no good.  (Works fine if
I source it, but not when I login.)

Can you help.

1. global cshrc files ?

Is it possible to make global .cshrc-files for csh and tcsh,
that are exec'd before the users own .cshrc-file ?

My system is Sun 4/330 with SunOS 4.1.1

Hope this ain't a FAQ or RTFM-question.

Please answer by e-mail and I shall summarize to
