Blocking is not done by the C-shell, but by the underlaying operating system.
The only way (I know) to force a C-shell to do a enless read loop
from stdin is

while(1)
      set i = `echo $<`
      # do your actions with  $i
      if ("$i" == "EndOfBlock") break
end

The program writing the output piped into this C-shell must send
a "EndOfBlock" string (any string allowed, must just be uniq to
the rest of the input data).
