I have a file ~/.login
It contains
echo Running ~/.login
setenv PATH  "${PATH}:/Users/nigelk/bin"
setenv PATH  "${PATH}:/sw/bin"
setenv MANPATH "/sw/share/man:/usr/share/man"
alias ll ls -l
alias more less
setenv PAGER less
setenv DISPLAY :0
After creating this logout and back in again.
Type env to discover what the PATH variable is set to for debugging.
