alias <alias name> <command>
An alias is a single command used to represent one or more other commands.
The ALIAS command can be used to manipulate your character's aliases. Type
ALIAS alone to see a list of your currently defined aliases.
Type ALIAS <alias name> <command> to create a new alias. The alias name must
be one word. The command can be any string. Aliases may not be nested or
used recursively. Any command may be overridden by an alias (other than the
ALIAS command itself, of course).
Examples: alias gbb get bread bag
alias gac get all corpse
Type ALIAS <alias-name> to delete an alias that has already been defined.
A semicolon (";") can be used to define multiple actions to be taken with
a single alias.
Example: alias eat get bread bag; eat bread
Note that the 'eat' contained within the eat alias is interpreted as the MUD's
internal eat command; aliases may not be nested or used recursively.
The variables $1, $2, ... $9 may be used to represent arguments given with
Examples: alias killem cast 'fireball' $1; cast 'harm' $2
killem fido mage
Would cast fireball on fido, followed by casting harm on mage. Variables
may be used repeatedly and in any order:
Example: alias helpem cast 'heal' $1; cast 'bless' $1; cast 'armor' $1
The special variable $* represents the entire input line after an alias:
Example: alias tm tell marge $*
tm hi there, how are you today?
You tell Marge, 'hi there, how are you today?'
