Personally, I would stay away from csh but...

In csh, the "switch" is used...

switch (string)
case str1:

In your script:

read choice
switch ($choice)
case 1:
sar -p
case 2:
sar -u
case 3:
diskusage -p
case 9:
echo 'Invalid choice'

The numbers in the case lines may have to be
strings like: case "1":
Since I haven't use csh in many years, I don't
recall exactly.

First make the script executable...

chmod 755 monitor

...then change the line...

read choice

set choice = $<

...sorry I did not pick this up before.
It has been many years since I've used csh.
Do NOT use "sh monitor" to execute. Just
type the script's name.
