Setting up aliases

Using shortcuts can save time. These statements can be added to the file named '.bashrc' in your home directory. Here are three examples. The lines starting with '#' are comments and are optional.

# detailed directory listing

alias ll="ls -la"

# quick route to my project space

alias jh="cd /export/projects/jharvard_res_project"

# start the emacs editor

alias emacs="emacs -nw"
