Tools tsch, error setting a variable

my code is:
set r=`ls -L $source_dir/*.snvf`
echo AAA

If does file does not exists I got on the screen

ls: No match.

How can I remove the "ls: No match." from being printed out

Tcsh is a really horrible shell. Can't you use a "proper" shell?!

I've googled, experimented and guessed, and can't find a solution.

So I give you this:

set p=`ksh -c "ls -L $source_dir/*.snvf 2>/dev/null"`

(or bash -c ...)
