Do 'locate init/tcsh' -- it will show you from where tcsh takes its 
settings ($HOME/Library/init/tcsh, /usr/share/init/tcsh in earlier Mac 
OS X versions too)! And there are too /etc/csh.{cshrc,login,logout}.

In tcsh path is the correct variable. It's set via 'set path=($path 
<new path> <next path>). For convenience of bash etc. a PATH variable 
is derived from path.



Remember: use logout to logout.
