Command: [un]alias Syntax: [un]alias [account] [ <alias> <command> | -clear ] CHARACTER aliases: alias View current aliases (CHARACTER and ACCOUNT). alias <alias> <command> Set the verb alias to execute command. alias <alias> Check the value of <alias> (CHAR and ACCOUNT) alias -clear Clear all current aliases unalias <alias> Removes <alias> from your alias list ACCOUNT aliases: alias account <alias> <command> Add alias for all chars on account. alias account -clear Clear all current ACCOUNT aliases unalias account <alias> Removes <alias> from your ACT alias list Substitution variables that exist are: $# - Where # is the number of the word after the verb to substitute. $* - Will be substituted with everything after the verb. Another example: 'alias k kill $*' will expand 'k dealer' to 'kill dealer' However it is not required as 'alias k kill' will also expand 'k dealer' to 'kill dealer' A better example of the use of the $* follows. 'alias sizeup consider $* sizeup' This will take any argument after typing sizeup and feed it into the alias : 'sizeup dog' -> 'consider dog sizeup' 'sizeup smurf 3' -> 'consider smurf 3 sizeup'
