comment parametric aliases in csh to add export command
One problem is you're using single quotes ('), not double quotes ("), the backtick is only executed inside double quotes. So, setenv gets the literal string echo \!:1 | cut -d'=' -f1` `echo \!:1 | cut -d'=' -f2; this is also what echo gets, which parses the backticks, which is why that works :-) ... I don't know how to get it working beyond that, though ... tcsh syntax can be so confusing!

comment Escaping output in tcsh completion by program
AFAIK I know, this is not possible. But I didn't dig that deep in the source, so I might be wrong.

revised Escaping output in tcsh completion by program
Add example output to show the problem; also remove perl tag since it is not *about* perl.

comment Escape code 50 in xterm
Using #n doesn't seem to work, in any case, it's the same as selecting the entry from the menu, which also doesn't work.

comment Escape code 50 in xterm
Using the menu doesn't work; I tried that (it does change the font, but not back to what I had), but using echo -e "\033]50;DejaVu Sans Mono:pixelsize=16\a" resets it! (I did find the list of xterm escape codes, btw, but 50 is written as 5 0, which is why I didn't find it. Do'h!) Thank you.
