Woops, yea, RTFM! I had looked in the FAQ, and thought the user guide was
the same since some parts were redundant. Sorry!

Unfortunately, that worked for a little while (to use ^z) in this
configuration, but got weird display problems... and then the ability went
away for some reason, I think it has to do with the *.pifs (do these things
still exist in windows as files, or are they in the registry?) that got
associated with the batch file. For instance, sometimes I would launch pfe,
and it would place the shell would place it in the background automatically,
sometimes I could ^z and place it there myself, or more often than not it
permits neithers. If I made a copy of the .bat file, I could then do it for
one instantiation! Unfortunately, I have no idea what the indepdent variable

Regardless, thankyou for all your help!

echo off
set tmp=d:\temp
set home=d:\user\reagle
set CYGWIN="tty"
set term=linux
cd d:\user\reagle

echo Reagles .tcshrc at /user/reagle

if ($?prompt) then
        set prompt = "$HOST\:\!%:%c>"
        set history = 32
