I'm using MS Visual C++ executables installed in:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\Bin
and for some reason they all have filenames which are all caps.
With tcsh in 1.3.8 some of the commands will complete and/or be found
either upper or lower case (e.g. cl.exe) and others will only complete
and/or be found if typed uppercase (e.g. NMAKE.EXE).
Now in 1.3.9 the PATH environment variable in tcsh has all the spaces in
the above path replaced with ':' and I have to type in the full path to all
the Visual C++ stuff. The path (not PATH) in tcsh, which is a translation
of the PATH variable, does not have the spaces replaced with ':'.
I guess I need to translate my .login and .cshrc to something bash can

UNIX is software. M$ Windows is hardware implemented in software.
When M$ says 'embrace and extend', what does that bring to mind?
A huge boa constrictor?
Save the world from M$ tyranny - embrace and extend LINUX before M$ does.
