tcsh 6.06

Post by Mark D. Ro » Fri, 08 Mar 1996 04:00:00



Has anyone gotten tcsh 6.06 to work under Linux?  I coaxed it into
compiling, but it kept locking up on me, so I backed off to 6.05
(which has never given me any trouble).  I'm sure I'm overlooking
something really obvious, but I've been banging my head against the
wall for a while...  Any suggestions/patches/whatever welcome.
Thanks.

Don't use xmkmf (Imake), as it doesn't work. Instead use the alternative
approach outlined in the README (copy a makefile).

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

HI,

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
    endif                      

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

  endif
else
  cat /etc/motd
endif

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.
