The above tcshrc file is used in a clearcase environment. If you do not use clearcase then remove the "IF" part of clearcase. This file can be used for customizing both csh and tcsh shell environment.

If you want to load a particular shell when you open a connection to the machine in putty, you can enter the shell name in your .login file.
