Creating an alias as a non root user .
Posted by Pratap on August 3, 2009
Many of you have faced the same problem for creating an alias of the frequently used command .
But here is another way to do it . It is not just to add alias using alias command which will enable the particular alias for particular session and console . I am not going to use alias command to create aliases .
I would suggest you (if you do not have root access ) to write a script which will help you to use it like an alias .
For example suppose you want to create the alias for telnet command , for root user it is easy to create , by adding a single line to .bashrc file but for a non-root user this is very handy .
vi t ### create a filename with t name
####add the following line to this file
telnet $1 $2
###save and quit :wq
chmod 777 t
now use the following command
./t yourdomain.com 25
#### voila it is working
Now it depends on you to choose it or reject it .
In the same way you can create many script for your aliases.
