    how to set a function to an alias in C shell

    In B shell's .profile, I set up as following:

    function mycd
    {
    if 'cd' "$@"
    then
    PS1="`uname -n`:`pwd` $ "
    fi
    }

    alias cd=mycd

    So evenytime when I do "cd", it shows me the current directory.

    I am trying do the same thing in C shell. I add these statements in .cshrc file, but it doesn't work.

    Is there anybody who can tell me how to set a function to an alias in C shell? Thanks.
