No doubt about that, but that's not the point.  Did you
read what i wrote further down in my message (what I
referred to by "see below")?

"Our" csh still behaves differently like any /bin/csh on
any other system that I know, and can't be easily made to
behave like them.

When I wrote "real csh", I meant a csh which exhibits the
traditional behaviour and user interface ("look and feel",
if you prefer) of a csh.  tcsh does not.  Someone used to
work with a "real csh" simply can't be happy with tcsh,
especially if he has to change frequently between using
FreeBSD and other systems.  It's a real PITA.
