How do I set up my UNIX account to run other software in the Department?

Every time you log on, the file .login. Every time you open a window or create a shell, the file .cshrc is read and executed. The following are the standard .login and .cshrc distributed by the Department.

Edit your .login file to look like this:

source /usr/local/etc/login
Edit your .cshrc or .tcshrc file to look like this:
source /usr/local/etc/cshrc
You can customize your environment as you wish. For more information, see the Standard cshrc login announcement under News & Announcements on this home page for additional information.
