I remember tcsh had a feature where you could say “cat foo”, and it would show you foo even if it was in another directory. You gave tcsh a “filepath” or something list of directories, saying “if I look for a file in the current directory and it’s not there, go through the list of directories I gave and give me the file from the first directory where it exists”. Am I misremembering? Was it another shell? Can tcsh do this? If so, how?
