Application, Version 2" echo "" echo -n "Type 1 or 2 and press Return to set your application environment: " set choice = $< if ( $choice !~ [1-2] ) then goto main endif switch ($choice) case "1": setenv APPHOME /opt/app-v.1 breaksw case "2": setenv APPHOME /opt/app-v.2 endsw
This site initialization file could be referenced in a user's .cshrc file (C shell users only) with the following line:
In this line, the site initialization file is named site.login and is located on a server named server2. This line also assumes that the automounter is running on the user's system.
