22<para>The <application>Tcsh</application> package contains "an enhanced but completely compatible
23version of the Berkeley Unix C shell (csh)". This is useful as an
24alternative shell for those who prefer C syntax to that of the bash
25shell, and also because some programs require the C shell in order to
26install.</para>
