running tcsh inside bash shell

running tcsh inside bash shell

running tcsh inside bash shell


I have a tcsh script called xx which takes 3 arguments like this: xx a b c
I want to run xx a b c inside a bash shell, how I do that?
I know I can do tcsh xx a b c
what is the syntax for passing xx a b c (with arguments) to the tcsh commmand?

pls help

RE: running tcsh inside bash shell

While you're in bash, just run the command as you mentioned...


bash> tcsh xx a b c 

You can also add the '-c' argument to treat the rest of the line as a command, but I believe that's the default anyway.


bash> tcsh -c xx a b c 

It's more steps, but you could also do this...


bash> tcsh
tcsh> xx a b c
tcsh> exit

Try 'man tcsh' more more information.
