List Current Aliases in Unix
Once a few aliases have been defined, you can manage them in different ways, as shown below:
|% alias||List currently defined aliases|
|% alias name||List the definition for the alias name|
|% alias | grep pattern||List all definitions that contain pattern|
|% \command||Temporarily disable the alias. Use the default command, not the alias by that name|
|% unalias name||Disable the alias definition for name for the rest of your UNIX session|
These commands are demonstrated in the following ToolTip: Mouseover the image below to obtain more information.
In the next lesson, the display of previous commands using the history feature will be discussed.
