The alias command is used to make a single command that does more
than one task or is easier to type.
The command by itself will list of your currently defined aliases.
To create a new alias use the following format:
alias <new alias name> <substitution>
> alias ggc get gold corpse
You can also use ; to define multiple commands in one alias.
> alias wakeup wake ; drink water ; eat bread ; stand
There are also a few variables you can use in your aliases:
$1 $2 $3 $4 $5 $6 $7 $8 $9 $*
The variables $1 - $9 represent words that are placed into
> alias cput put $1 bag;put $2 bag;put $3 bag
> cput bannana apple grapes This translates into put bananna bag,
put apple bag and put grapes bag.
The variable $* represent all of the words used after the alias.
> alias tn tell nezmar $*
> tn Distant Lands is a great mud! This translates into tell Nezmar
Distant Lands is a great mud!
You can also combine a number with the $* alias to add all of the words
used after a specific number of words. Note: This will remove the leading
> alias actsay emote $1 and says, '$2*'
> actsay smiles Hello, it is nice to meet you.
This would translate into an emote such as the following:
Nezmar smiles and says, 'Hello, it is nice to meet you.'
To delete an alias, use the following format:
alias <old alias name>
> alias actsay
