I managed to find a manpage online for an HP-UX version of tcsh, and it made no reference to --version (or any other command for getting the version). It is entirely possible that the HP-UX port of tcsh doesn't provide any way of reporting its version number. Perhaps there is some other way that HP-UX provides for finding out version numbers of installed software?
Unfortunately, only someone who is familiar with HP-UX or has access to an HP-UX machine can tell you for certain. Perhaps HP-UX's package manager
can help you, if tcsh was installed by the package manager.
There is always the possibility that tcsh is a symlink to tcsh-x.y.z I suppose
BTW HP-UX questions are bit of a stretch of the term 'linux-newbie'
You have to bear in mind that "Linux is not UNIX". If you were to take the the two most different Linux distributions, and multiply the number of differences by 20, that would likely give you an idea of how different Linux is from HP-UX (and how different each of the major Unices are from each other).
