3. Bash Profile -- According to this terminal there is no 'alias' command


#1

Hi amegowan,
Even I got stuck at same place.
I used 'man' command to see what's the problem with 'alias' command.
According to this terminal there is no 'alias' command.

$ man alias
No manual entry for alias

The lack of a man page doesn't mean the command doesn't exist.

$ aoeuhtns
bash: aoeuhtns: command not found
$ alias
$

See the difference?

And bash might have something to say about its built-in commands:

$ help alias
alias: alias [-p] [name[=value] ... ]
    Define or display aliases.
