If I was at my linux box, I could figure out your last couple of questions, but I do not know them off the top of my head.

And being the fact that soooo many ppl here love Linux (end of sarcaism) I would suggest some linux forums. www.linuxforum.com

OK figured it out. If you are interested her it is.

grep ^\# $argv[1] >> $argv[2]

In tcsh "\" masks special chars
