  | I think I got the general idea of aliases now

I'm not sure why you want or need that, aliases
are dumb (bizarre) and shoukd be deleted...

I keep trying to get tge POSIX people to
remove them from the standard.  They keep ignoring me.  Shells won't drop
support, but at least
no-one woukd be able to rely on them working,
or working any particular way any more.

They are fine as an interactive feature but definitely don't belong in
shell scripts.

The only place I've ever used aliases is in a script:

alias show_command='[ $verbose -gt ${debuglevel:-0} ] && printf "%s" "++ $FUNCNAME " "${@/%/ 
}" && echo '

I couldn't use a function (which I do for all interactive uses) because that 
would change $FUNCNAME.
