Alias.mine problems
Authored by: cedmond on Apr 07, '02 12:04:30PM

For folks having trouble with this I did.
Creating a file titled "aliases.mine" in the directory "~/Library/init/tcsh/" does work, but with the following requirements.

Make sure the last line of your text file has a carriage return. In other words, go to the end of the very last line of your document and hit "return". There has to be an empty line at the end of the file or it won't work.

Make sure the file is plain text and that there is no hidden extension. Likewise, be sure that the extension ".mine" is visible. To check this select the "aliases.mine" file in the Finder and do "Get Info". Go to "Name & Extension", uncheck "Hide Extension" if checked and check to be sure the name is "aliases.mine" exactly.

Hope this helps.
