Creating and Managing Unix Aliases

  1. alias: List all aliases
  2. alias rm: List a specific alias.
  3. alias rm rm -i: Define an alias.
  4. alias | grep rm: List all aliases that match a pattern.
  5. rm: Temporarily use the default command, not the alias by that name.
  6. unalias rm: Disable an alias for the rest of the session.

GNU/Linux Options
-7 Strip the eighth bit on input and output.
-b hostalias
Use bind(2) to bind the local socket to an aliased address or
the address of an interface other than the one that would be
chosen by connect(2).
