Bash alias -=... (alias name should be a simple dash) not working
I intend to create an alias for
cd - which need to be simply a dashboard (
I attempted without success:
alias -='cd -' # bash: alias: -=: Invalid option alias \-='cd -' # bash: alias: -=: Invalid option alias '-'='cd -' # bash: alias: -=: Invalid option alias '\-'='cd -' # bash: alias: `\-': Invalid alias name.
The previous 3 coincide (just various input, yet bash transforms every one of them right into the very same command
alias with a solitary argument
-=cd -), so it is not a surprise the mistake message coincides. I would certainly presume that if the argument begins with a dashboard, it is analyzed as a flag as opposed to the alias name.
Is it also feasible to make use of
- as an alias name?
