Thumbs down

Hi whansard,

Thank you for your help....
The problem which i faced today is I cannot able to complete the function with TAB option. On checking further, I found that the shell has been changed to csh and I changed this to bash prompt to fix the problem.

I know its silly, Sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you for all your help..
