hi, would it be sufficient to have similar info as bash regarding alias:
$ alias --help
bash: alias: --: invalid option
alias: usage: alias [-p] [name[=value] ... ]

Comment 4 Petr Kremensky 2013-07-22 13:58:37 UTC
Hi, this will not work, there is no [-p] option and I wasn't able to add more aliases on single line eg. 
alias cd="cd subsystem=logging" ls="ls -l"

alias cd='cd subsystem=logging" ls="ls -l'
alias cd='cd subsystem=logging'
alias ls='ls -l'

Comment 5 Ståle W. Pedersen 2013-07-22 14:03:45 UTC
yes, i know it doesnt support -p and more that one alias on a single line, it was more meant as a general help msg example.
- ill try to implement that though later :)

Comment 6 Petr Kremensky 2013-07-22 14:29:11 UTC
I see :), than something like this would be IMO sufficient.
