I need an icon like that

Yea.. if I drop the course, I'm going to e-mail him the "Don't script in csh" essay. The package includes modified tcsh scripts (they run in the prof's tcsh-extension specialized for his Franken-language.)

I have no qualm with Emacs users. I use Emacs (MULE) for any writing that needs multi-language support, since its a royal nightmare in Vim. However, even if I could train myself to use Emacs to code, I'm going to bitch and moan about being locked into an environment to pass a course :-P.

tcsh beats the pants off of csh, which some people continue to use to this day. Of my workgroup of about 40 people, about 35 of them exclusively use csh (their shell usage needs are apparently vanishingly small). I use tcsh interactively so that they can handle my terminals when needed, I can source their lousily-built scripts, etc. I script only in sh, bash, and ksh, of course.
