Unhappy The .cshrc file is missing from the user homedir

Dear experts;

I am about to start an installation, however one of the requirement is that the installation owner should have a “.cshrc” file in its home directory. When I created the user I have set the C-shell as the default, but now all I can find is the “.bashrc”.
Can someone please tell me what should I do?

Thank you,

You can just create the file .cshrc in your home directory.

When you make changes to it, run the command (in a terminal) "source ~/.cshrc", to make the changes apply to your current terminal, otherwise just close the window and open another one.

I hope this helps
