alias

Adds a new alias or modifies an existing one
Usage
alias [-q] (<alias_name>) <implementation>
alias [-q] (<alias_name>){}
Description
Adds the alias <alias_name> with the specified <implementation> code. The implementation code can be either a single KVS instruction or an instruction block (instruction list enclosed in braces).
If the alias was already existing, it is replaced with the new implementation.
If the <implementation> is empty (eg. "{}" or just a ";") the alias <alias_name> is removed instead of being added. If the "remove" form is used but the specified <alias_name> is not existing in the alias store then a warning is printed unless the -q (--quiet) switch is used. If <alias_name> contains a "<name>::" prefix, then the alias is created in the namespace specified by <name>. If the namespace is not existing, it is created. Any alias without the "<name>::" prefix is created in the root namespace. Namespaces are useful to avoid collisions in alias names between scripts. Only really common aliases should be created in the root namespace: all your script internal functionality should be hidden in your own namespace.
Switches
-q | --quiet
Causes the command to run quietly
Syntax Specification
alias [-q] (<alias_name>) <implementation>
alias [-q] (<alias_name>){}
