Yes, just install your own alias. For example, in my .cshrc file for the accounts I use I put: alias dir ls -lAF and then I have a dir. I also alias ls to: alias ls ls -F and lo to: alias lo logout and numerous others. That is the normal way of creating these simple things. ////jerry > _______________________________________________ > firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
