3.1.4 Aliases

Command aliases can be defined within the menu system. As with the UNIX csh shell, aliases take precedence over command execution. The following aliases are predefined in Cortex: error, pwd, chdir, ls, ., and alias.

error   displays the Scheme object that was the "irritant'' in the most recent Scheme error interrupt.

pwd   prints the working directory in which all file operations will take place.

chdir   will change the working directory.

ls   lists the files in the working directory.

alias   displays the list of symbols currently aliased.
