Description Milan Kerslager 2001-07-05 08:07:44 EDT
Parsing /etc/profile.d is intended for log-in shell. So appropriate section
shoud be in /etc/csh.login and not in /etc/csh.cshrc.
Yes, (t)csh interprets these files in reverse order, but we can't change
this. What we *should* honour is the same behaviour for all shells when
sourcin startup scripts.
Comment 1 Milan Kerslager 2001-07-05 08:10:34 EDT
And please write down to this scripts that they are for shell initialization and
other is meaned for login set-up (/etc/profile, /etc/bashrc, /etc/csh.*).

Will be fixed in 2.5.0-1; thanks!
