2.13 A .cshrc.$HOST File for Per Host Setup

I work with different types of machines every day. It is often necessary to set things up differently for, say, a Linux box, than a SPARCstation. Going beyond that, you may want to set things up differently on a per-host basis.

I have this test in my .cshrc file:

setenv 
if ~ 

setenv HOST "`uname -n`"
if (-e ~/lib/cshrc.hosts/cshrc.$HOST) then
   source ~/lib/cshrc.hosts/cshrc.$HOST
endif

So, if I log in to a machine named (50.7) bosco, and I have a file called ~/lib/cshrc.hosts/cshrc.bosco, I can source (44.23) it to customize my environment for that one machine. Examples of things you would put in a .cshrc.$HOST file:

In general, this idea allows you to group together whatever exceptions you want for a machine, rather than having to write a series of switch (47.6) or if statements (47.3) throughout your .cshrc and .login files.
