See Csh for a lot of information about csh, including "lists".
#!/usr/bin/env tcsh

# @(#) s1       Demonstrate array-like csh features, "lists".

echo "(Versions displayed with local utility version)"
sh -c "version >/dev/null 2>&1" && version tcsh

set a = ( hello world )
echo " $a[2]"

exit 0

% ./s1

(Versions displayed with local utility version)
tcsh 6.13.00


... cheers, drl

Standard advice: avoid csh for scripting, use Bourne-family shells.

why don't you tap the "Holy Grail of Information"?

man csh

will print out to the very screen in front of you all the information there is about csh and all you need to know for your homework.

Hi, npatwardhan.

You are adding a question to a completed thread that is a year old.

To get more interest in your question, I suggest you start a new thread of your own.

In addition, it is not clear what you want, do you want an answer for the bash shell or the c shell?

Best wishes ... cheers, drl
