I just learned the trick for setting up cdpath in tcsh and it looks pretty useful.

However seems auto-complete of sub-folder names doesn't come with it, is there any trick available on that? It'd be really cool since I'm entering certain directories a lot.

I am using tcsh 6.14.00 (Astron)

Do you have these in your .cshrc? "set autolist = ambiguous" and "set complete = enhance" ? –  Hennes Nov 8 '13 at 23:19
Thanks for the reply, i just added these two into .cshrc, however seems it's not working. –  Derek Nov 8 '13 at 23:27
Did you relog, source the file or start a new csh? (e.g. exec csh)? Which version of csh are you using? –  Hennes Nov 8 '13 at 23:32
Yes, I did that. I'm not sure about the csh version, how can I tell? –  Derek Nov 9 '13 at 6:25
If you still do not have an answer in a few days you might consider a bounty or moving (not cross posting) the question to Linux and unix. They have some similar questions which did get an answer. –  Hennes Nov 14 '13 at 6:46
