10.0 host and using pw command to adduser.
pw adduser test -c Test-user -m -g wheel -w yes
original /etc/csh.cshrc and /usr/share/skel/dot.cshrc files
When I log into user test the prompt is a single dollar sign.
Issuing the ll command i see .cshrc*
Why does this file end with an *?
I can edit the as .cshrc* or .cshrc and replace the existing set prompt
statement with set prompt = "# %/ >" then save the file, exit and login
again. The prompt is still a dollar sign.
If I issue set prompt = "# %/ >" command from the test user command line
the prompt still doe's not change.
I can edit the /usr/share/skel/dot.cshrc replacing the existing set
prompt with the new one, deluser test, adduser test, and still get
dollar sign for the prompt even though I see the wanted prompt statement
in user test home directory .cshrc* file.
Another problem is the alias commands la and lf don't work but the ll
alias does work.
