Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

So, sure, I could convert all of my .alias file, and the large directory of scripts I also imported from my old solaris account, to bash. That represents a lot of work though, and before doing that, I'd rather understand what is wrong with the way I'm attempting to set up the alias in the tcsh. I guess I would expect tcsh in solaris and tcsh under linux to work largely the same, and where they are different, the manpages should be explicit.
A gripe I have is that the bsd manpage for the built-ins is so dismissively terse that it's not helpful here - "Users of other shells will need to consult the documentation supplied with the other shells." Maybe I need to set some path up in tcsh in order to see the relevant manpages?
