Suppose I have a short script as such:

find . -name 'wwwboard.html' -print | while read i
do
  print $i
done

In csh, the appropriate syntax would be $i:r

I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
If you don't know what it is, either ignore it or visit www.gnupg.org
My PGP key was last signed 6/10/2003 please download my key again if
it is more recent than your copy. If you use GPG, *please* talk to
me to sign it. The key is keyID E2B2CAD1 on pgp.mit.edu
