Description Erkan Ertugrul 1999-12-01 08:31:08 UTC
I can not run scripts.
In slackware linux, I would write 'chmod +x filename' and filename would
be 'filename*'. Then I would write filename at command prompt and it would
run. Now, there is no * added to filename and when filename is written at
command prompt, it behaves as if a bad command is entered.

Thanks for your interest.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-12-01 13:11:59 UTC
There are two problems here:

1) The asterisk at the end of the file name is added by ls when
given the option -F. Try adding
	alias ls 'ls -F'
to your .cshrc

2) Your PATH environment variable does not contain the current directory
so tcsh cannot find the filename entered on the command line. Either execute
the script as
	./filename
(the preferred solution) or add the current directory to your PATH
	setenv PATH "$PATH:."
Note: Adding the current directory to the end of your PATH is not recommended
because it makes you vulnerable to "trojan horses" (i.e. scripts with the
same name as a commonly used executable).
