Suse 10.0 .cshrc setup

I am attempting to setup the license key for some commercial CAD software. I have been discussing with the apps engineer, but it does not seem to be getting me anywhere. I am using Suse 10.0 on a 64 bit Athlon laptop. Suse uses bash whereas the group I recieve the software from uses tcsh. I am not an expert admin (this is my own computer) and this is personal work. :-)

I have tried aspects of changing /etc/passwd and other things. I set up the .cshrc under my home directory/<usr account> ( I am also the admin on this laptop). I did a source .cshrc and obtained no errors. Is it possible that it does not see my personal .cshrc?

This is what I have set up for the /home/<personal user name>/.cshrc file on my computer

set path = $path ~/ssoft/bin
set path = $path slam_install_dir/bin
set env SS_LICENSE_FILE ./psida.key

If I include the parenthesis typically used for set path, I recieve an error. I also have a /etc/csh.cshrc file and reading through it it recommends setting up a /etc/csh.cshrc.local file. (??)

When I try to invoke the license key, it did not see it. If I use the entire path for invoking the license key it starts the setup but does not see the license key. The license key is in the correct path.

Best regards,

/home/miguel> echo $path
/home/miguel/bin /usr/local/bin /usr/bin /usr/X11R6/bin /bin /usr/games /opt/gnome/bin /opt/kde3/bin /usr/lib/jvm/jre/bin /usr/sbin /usr/lib/mit/bin /usr/lib/mit/sbin /usr/lib/qt3/bin
/home/miguel> set path=(/another/dir/in/path $path)
/home/miguel> echo $path
/another/dir/in/path /home/miguel/bin /usr/local/bin /usr/bin /usr/X11R6/bin /bin /usr/games /opt/gnome/bin /opt/kde3/bin /usr/lib/jvm/jre/bin /usr/sbin /usr/lib/mit/bin /usr/lib/mit/sbin /usr/lib/qt3/bin
/home/miguel> setenv MYVAR whatever
/home/miguel> bash
miguel@gold:~> echo $MYVAR

The set path syntax is exactly as you can see above. using = and () and no spaces !

The setenv syntax is exactly as you can see above. :-)
Not use = and with spaces and no ().

In above, after setting a ENV var, a call a bash to check the ENV var MYVAR was exported to the child, as you can see in the echo $MYVAR.

I hope this help, If no, post a reply in this same thread.
