    does anyone know of a good reference for PS1 syntax in tcsh
specifically, and even better would be a ref. for .tcshrc in general. 
i'd like to have my PS1 truncate the path after a certain amount of
chars so i don't end up with a commandline like this:

i know if several good bash PS1 configs...but i'm not too sure if they are
portable to csh and tcsh.
