couple questions about set path

My sys admin has set couple paths at .cshrc_global and I don't have permission to edit the file.
How can I add my own path? If I type set path = ( ~/usr/local/bin ), this will set path ONLY to
my ~/usr/local/bin and the old paths that have been assigned by my sys admin will be deleted.

My 2nd question is: I hate to type ./my_executable_file everytime. How can I make the program runs
when I just type my_executable_file without ./  ?

Thanks.

Hi,

  Just copy the .cshrc_global into your home directory and rename it to .cshrc, edit the file and add whatever path you need in
the path statement. Inorder to execute something in the current directory just add a "." to the end of your path statement.

Ex:
set path = ( /usr/bin /usr/local/bin /etc /abc/def . )

I found another simple way. I don't need to copy .cshrc_global, but instead at my .cshrc, I add

set path = ( $path ~/user/local/bin \
                    $path . )
