[PD] alias.mine file for OSX

Originally OS X doesn't include the .tcshrc file.
You should create it as a plain text file with the following line:

alias pd /Applications/pd/bin/pd

of course if you pd lives in /Applications/pd/bin/

you can also add any kind of flag
my .tcshrc looks like this:

alias pd /Applications/pd/bin/pd -rt -r 44100 -nomidi

besides the .tcshrc should be on your home directory and you won't be 
able to see it unless you use ls -a command
(shows hidden files that start with a dot)

Hope this helps
