csh shell source code


Hi,
Where can I get source code of C shell (csh) ? I googled a lot, but didn't find it.

I've Ubuntu 15.10 running on an AARCH64 evaluation platform Juno (sold by ARM holdings). Unfortunately "apt-get install csh" tells me that this package does not exist for ARM64 platform.
That's why I need to build csh from sources as some of my shell scripts are in csh.

Thank you
M.

Do you by any chance have tcsh? That's C shell with file name completion and command line editing.

You're more likely to have (or being able to get) that than going through trying to build it.

Hope this helps some.

Really??? Because when I put "csh source code" into Google, I get (as the SECOND HIT):
http://www.tcsh.org/MostRecentRelease

...a link to the tcsh web page, where you can download it.

Again, interesting...since I put "ubuntu arm64 tcsh" into Google, and got as the VERY FIRST HIT:
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/xenial/arm64/tcsh

...the repository with the latest version, dated February of this year.
