It does? I didn't know that and I'm the package maintainer...


P.S.: No, it doesn't.  Create your own symlink or change the first
script line to `#!/bin/tcsh'

Corinna, Igor,

I wonder what this means:

% ll /bin/{t,}csh.exe
-rwxrwxrwx    1 Administ None       251904 Dec 25  2001 /bin/csh.exe*
-rwxrwxrwx    1 Administ None       284672 Feb 11 12:16 /bin/tcsh.exe*

% cygcheck csh Found: D:\cygwin\bin\csh.exe D:\cygwin\bin\csh.exe D:\cygwin\bin\cygncurses6.dll D:\cygwin\bin\cygwin1.dll D:\WINNT\System32\KERNEL32.dll D:\WINNT\System32\ntdll.dll

The Cygwin package content list for the "tcsh" package doesn't mention "csh -> tcsh.exe" or "csh.exe".

Perhaps at some point I copied /bin/tcsh.exe to /bin/csh.exe? Or maybe an ealier form of the package included csh.exe?
