    Hi. In a nutshell, I'd like to know how to make a terminal window close
    when I type 'exit'. When I open a saved .term file and type 'exit' the
    window closes automatically. Please can someone tell me how to
    configure my shell so that this happens with ALL terminal windows I
    open? I'm using bash under Panther, but I'd also like to know how it's
    done in tcsh, too, if poss. Used to have this sorted out under Jaguar,
    but now I can't remember how I did it...

    TIA for any help or advice
    Love
    Lucy N

    Under the Terminal.app, "Window Settings...", "Shell" settings, select
    the "When the shell exits:" option you want. Then click on the "Use
    Setting as Default".
