Question tcsh and redirect

Hello, maybe it is a silly question, but can somebody tell me how to do a redirect of errors in the t shell?

csh is broken in the fact that it is impossible to redirect stderr without also redirecting stdout.
See the first section of <A HREF="http://www.perl.com/pub/language/versus/csh.html">Csh Programming Considered Harmful</A> by Tom Christiansen.

Recommend using sh/bash/ksh or similar if you need this functionality.
