Your code calls csh rather than tcsh, though setenv is a built-in in both.

In tcsh the shell maintains a list of variables, each of which whose values can be displayed and changed with
the set and unset commands.

The system maintains its own list of "environment" variables, these can be displayed and changed with printenv, setenv and unsetenv.

~> set PATH=${PATH}:${HOME}/bin
~> echo $PATH

~> setenv PATH ${PATH}:${HOME}/src/perl
~> printenv PATH
