You can modify your unix account to conform to the current standards by typing --
at the strauss prompt. This command first makes backups of any existing configuration files you may have, then copies the current standard files to your home directory. The names of the backup files are displayed on your terminal screen. For example --
strauss.udel.edu% ~consult/proto/setup Backing up .cshrc to .cshrc-May-30 Copying new .cshrc Backing up .localenv to .localenv-May-30 Copying new .localenv Backing up .localalias to .localalias-May-30 Copying new .localalias Backing up .login to .login-May-30 Copying new .login strauss.udel.edu%
If you have customized any of these files and want to keep your custom settings, copy the commands you have added from the backups into the corresponding new version after the comments marked by ### Begin.
For detailed instructions about configuration ("dot") files see the
help document on UNIX setup. Be sure to follow the
