editing bash to auto activate some options?


Hi, just a short question, say everytime i type

btdownloadcurses.py <filename>

i want linux to automatically add some options for me without me actually typing it out

btdownloadcurses.py --ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx --minport xxx --maxport xxx <filename>

how do i go about doing this?

aliases are what you need.

Code:
alias aliasname="command opt1 opt2"
After that aliasname will be expended by bash to what's on the left.

eg.

Code:
alias ls="ls -l"
will have ls expanded to ls -l

You might want to add it to your .bash_profile for perment effect.
