A C-shell script doesn't work on redhat 7.3 but works on Sun Solaris


I'm a new user of Linux and I decided to start with Linux Redhat 7.3.. I only used UNIX as a user on SUN stations at my faculty.... Now I have setup c shell script that I already used on the SUN stations (Solaris) but when I try to run them now in the c-shell terminal in RH 7.3. I get errors like "badly placed ()s"... Can anybody just help me....?

Not without posting the script, or parts of it.

'After csh was let loose on an unsuspecting world various people
decided that the bugs really should get fixed, and while they where at
it they might as well add some extra features. In came command line
editing, TENEX-style completion and several other features. Out went
most of the bugs, but did the various UNIX operating system
manufacturers start shipping tcsh instead of csh? No, most of them
stuck with the standard C-Shell, adding non-standard features as they
went along.'

Note the last line.

Yup. Unhelpful though this reply may be, and I do not know the answer to your questions, you should consider reading
