    getting hostname of computer through rsh


    Hi, in my .cshrc file I would like to set DISPLAY.
    I know how to do that, thats not the problem though.

    Lets say I have a machine called mike and I rsh to a machine called luke, I would somehow like
    to set the DISPLAY variable to mike:0 automatically. Now If I could get mike into an enviroment variable, I could set my display in .cshrc using that variable.

    Anybody know of how to go about doing this?

    --Mike

    My tip is that you should use ssh instead of rsh. It's more secure, and you can set it up to perform automatic X11 forwarding.
