Linux alias command permanent 2017-02-16 04:11

The command alias helps us us short command instead of long command and parameters. The problem is when you next time login the shortcut is disappeared. You need to change the .bashrc file to define your specific aliases. The path of .bashrc is ~/.bashrc. For example, you want us vim instead of vi command. Edit your .bashrc file like following.

# .bashrc

# User specific aliases and functions

alias rm='rm -i'
alias cp='cp -i'
alias mv='mv -i'
alias vi='vim'

# Source global definitions
if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then
        . /etc/bashrc
