Released tcsh 6.23

Written late in the morning in English • Tags: ,

I am pleased to announce that tcsh-6.23 is now available; this is mainly a bug fix release (after 2 years) with a couple of new features:

  1. Add jobs -Z to setproctitle(3)
  2. Add ln=target in LS_COLORS
  3. Add a :Q modifier that preserves empty arguments

Please consult the Fixes file for a complete list of changes.

Tcsh is an enhanced version of the Berkeley C-shell that offers command line editing and completion plus many other little things that preserve the length of your fingers.

Tcsh runs on most UNIX machines, as well as Windows.

You can get tcsh from
The latest source is on GitHub:

RMD160 (tcsh-6.23.00.tar.gz) = 956bf3a7cf52f5e4865749d29946cf6e8d512ae3

This is a gzip (GNU zip) tar archive. If you don’t have GNU zip you can get it from or other GNU mirrors.

I would like to thank:

  • everyone who sent bug reports
  • the beta team for all their help, bug fixes, and suggestions

Kind regards,
+ Kimmo
