That's.. peculiar. Can you somehow embed this inside of a tcsh script
so that people don't have to do the extra step?

Otherwise, you should put some better instructions in the comments.

I was a long-time tcsh user, but I often found myself firing up bash
for this or that odd thing. Then along came bash's recent extremely
powerful completion mechanism and I decided it was high time to switch.

Now I find myself using bash control structures on the command line
fairly regularly, which I never did with tcsh.

The only thing I miss is the ^Z toggle-editor feature.

Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
