A question about "alias"


as we all know,when you type "alias -p" ,there is the list:


alias cp='cp -i'
alias l.='ls -d .* --color=tty'
alias ll='ls -l --color=tty'
alias ls='ls --color=tty'
alias mv='mv -i'
alias rm='rm -i'
alias vi='vim'
alias which='alias | /usr/bin/which --tty-only --read-alias --show-dot --show-tilde'


what i want to know is how i can change the list above?where is the file storing the list above?

you can use unalias -a to remove all aliases, or unalias rm etc. to remove only one. these are stored in a your home directory in .bash* ( i forgot which one could be aliases or profile)

There are three lines set in the ~/.bashrc
alias rm='rm -i'
alias cp='cp -i'
alias mv='mv -i'

But where are the others set?such as:
alias l.='ls -d .* --color=tty'
alias ll='ls -l --color=tty'
alias ls='ls --color=tty'
They aren't stored in ~/.bashrc,Where can i find them?

Those aliases may be set up for all users in /etc/profile. On some systems, there is an aliases script that one of the startup or login scripts source. You might try using grep in /etc to search for 'alias ll' for example, or a beagle daemon search.

My ~/.bashrc file contains the line:'.bashrc:test -s ~/.alias && . ~/.alias || true' which tests for a personal ~/.alias file and sources it if it exists.
