logout/shutdown script

I am running JDictd (http://www.informatik.uni-leipzig.de/~duc/Java/JDictd/) from tcsh in Terminal on Mac OS X (:=Darwin=FreeBSD/Mach).

I am trying to get it to exit cleanly silently upon Mac OS X system shutdown.

My idea was that if there was a logout script in FreeBSD (basically a script that would run at each logout), then I could send a QUIT or TERM signal from there.
Is there a way to have a script that would run at each logout and/or shutdown? Or does anyone have a better idea?

Thanks a bunch!

i know bash does but am not sure if tcsh does, bash has two files, one of which is read during login and one which is read at logout, check tsch documentation, "man tcsh" should let you know.
