the person might want to check...

1. if csh exists, and if it's location is consistant with the shebang line
   at the top of the script (name the #! line)

2. check to see if "." is in his path, therefore he won't have to type
   ./autorun for it to run.

3. check permissions (yeah the executable bit is set, it was listed in the
   ls he sent in)

4. switch to perl =)

i believe there is a long listing of the con's of using csh for file
redirection (or general scripting) posted to comp.answers.  i made a perl
version of autorun a few weeks ago, since i wanted some modularity.
