The Tcsh package contains “an enhanced but completely compatible version of the Berkeley Unix C shell (csh)”. This is useful as an alternative shell for those who prefer C syntax to that of the bash shell, and also because some programs require the C shell in order to perform installation tasks.
This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.4 platform.

Install Tcsh by running the following commands:
sed -i -e 's|\$\*|#&|' -e 's|fR/g|&m|' tcsh.man2html && ./configure --prefix=/usr --bindir=/bin && make && sh ./tcsh.man2html
To test the results, issue: make check.
Now, as the
make install install.man && ln -v -sf tcsh /bin/csh && ln -v -sf tcsh.1 /usr/share/man/man1/csh.1 && install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/doc/tcsh-6.18.01/html && install -v -m644 tcsh.html/* /usr/share/doc/tcsh-6.18.01/html && install -v -m644 FAQ /usr/share/doc/tcsh-6.18.01

installs the tcsh
/bin instead of
sh ./tcsh.man2html: This creates HTML documentation from the formatted man page.
ln -v -sf tcsh
/bin/csh: The FHS states that if there is a
C shell installed, there should be
a symlink from
/bin/csh to it. This
creates that symlink.
There are numerous configuration files for the C shell. Examples
of these are
~/.logout. More information on these files can
be found in the
tcsh(1) man page.
/etc/shells to include the C
