setenv LSCOLORS ExGxdxdxCxDxDxBxBxegeg
in the csh's initialisation file (typically ~/.cshrc
for local use, /etc/csh.cshrc for global effect)
and maybe setup an alias:
alias ls 'ls -FG'
alias ll 'ls -laFG'
However, ls should provide colored output even
if you don't set the $LSCOLORS variable. It
should work with the default terminal emulation
(cons25 or cons25l1).
