I have 2 large commercial programs that work together come with fairly involved .cshrc scripts. But whether I am in a bash/tsch/csh shell at start up, my initial path on startup is in bash format. When I run the .cshrc scripts that set the paths (and variables) for the programs support files, the system ignores the paths set via the cshrc script.
Example from the echo $PATH command Note, I get same results if I start up in a bash or csh shell.
initial path /usr:/usr/bin
after cshrc /usr:/usr/bin /home/program1 /home/program2
since I can't alter their scripts, what can I do to change the path to 1 format? Either: /usr:/usr/bin:/home/program1:/home/program2 or /usr usr/bin /home/program1 /home/program2
