this cshell script does not work ??

Hi I am trying to put the following commands that i have to type manually at the cshell prompt into a cshell script startup.csh which is copied below


echo $DISPLAY
xhost +
rsh ba08lo01
module load incisiv/102/10.20.035
setenv DISPLAY $DISPLAY


When i run the script with source command as follows

$ source startup.csh


I get the following messages on the cshell

ba08ut01:12:0 #this is the output of first command
access control disabled,clients can connect from any host #output of 2nd command
Last Login Sat, Feb 11, 04:01:22 from ba08ut01 #output of last command


I am wondering why lines 3 and 4 are not getting executed in the startup.csh script. If i type these commands on the command prompt, i see them executing and the messages they print out to the screen.

Is there some thing wrong with the syntax?

Please correct me.

Do i have to modify it a lot in case i want to convert it to bash script.

Thanks a lot for your attention

Hats off to Corona688 for his earlier help.

What's the value of $DISPLAY ?
The 'rsh' command may be eating the lines below it.

ba08ut01:12:0

Note i have written this in the original post as well. Please see if you get a chance
