help in tcsh

am working in tcsh

while writing a script, what is diff between foll two starting line

#!/bin/csh

#!/bin/csh -f

Also can I use the same line for script in tcsh or I have to necessarily use

#!/bin/tcsh

I guess even #!/bin/sh will also do. Kindly clarify

The first line defines the interpretor to use for the script.

If you have "#!/bin/sh" you are running the Bourne Shell

If you have "#!/bin/csh" you are running the C shell

If you have "#!/bin/usr/ksh" you are running the Korn shell

Etc.
