Description Need Real Name 2004-09-21 09:03:44 EDT
Description of problem:
Debian comes with several time-saving aliases which Red Hat does not have.

Althought it is easy to add them to /etc/bashrc, more people would
benefit if they were standard.

Here are the three I use most:
 alias o='less'
 alias ..='cd ..'
 alias ...='cd ../..'
Comment 1 Robert Scheck 2004-09-22 03:50:25 EDT
Whatever "time-saving" means at typically typing speeds at 5-7 
keyboard hits/second ;-)
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2004-09-22 09:16:37 EDT
Very true :)

But it feels like a big time saver - once you get used to those three
the originals feel like timewasters (!)
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-09-22 15:19:38 EDT
I don't see any logical connection that leads from "i need to view a
file, i'll use 'o'". I'm not sure we really need to be introducing
more aliases in general.
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2004-09-23 03:01:21 EDT
That's one third of the bug!

How about .. and ..., both are logical.
Comment 5 Need Real Name 2004-10-12 05:54:21 EDT
Please can .. and ... be added as alias'?
Comment 6 Robert Scheck 2004-10-12 06:54:11 EDT
Bill, I also think .. and ... are maybe useful for some (or only a 
few) users, can we set this aliases, please - they also shouldn't 
hurt anyone ;-)
