aliases
Authored by: tlr on May 05, '01 04:03:39PM

The default file for aliases is
/usr/share/init/tcsh/aliases
here you can find the actual definitions of default aliases, with comment. For instance, one line read:
alias line 'sed -n '''!:1 p''' !:2' # line 5 file => show line 5 of file
which should answer some question ;-)

The recommended way to create new aliases is NOT creating a .tcshrc file, but instead:
1/ Create a directory named "init" in your Library directory (in your home dir), then a directory named "tcsh" inside;
2/ create a text file named "aliases.mine" in that ~/Library/init/tcsh. you can use TextEdit if you remind to save as text. Put your aliases definitions here.
