Bug TAB : Auto-Fill Issue

Dear Forum Members,

We use TAB to Auto-Fill the file/directory names starting with that alphabet(s). My TAB Auto-Fills when there is no other file/directory starting with that alphabet(s). My issue is, when there is more than one match, hitting TAB "twice", does not list file/directory names starting with that alphabet(s) so that I can type few more characters to get file/directory name that I want. Should I add anything to .cshrc so that hitting TAB "twice", will list file/directory names? Mine is C-Shell.

Just got an answer from an old thread....

in ~/.cshrc put
set filec
set autolist

Thanks Forum!
