Question How to make a specific command(s) work in a specific shell only


hello everybody !

Iam just a newbie in Linux and i have a small doubt in it.
Iam trying to make a specific command work in only a specific shell only.
For instance, say, that i want to execute aliase command only in ksh or csh only. I tried all that but in vain.
So, please help me in knowing how to do it.

Thanks to all in advance.

warmth...

The alias command isn't a command at all, but rather a shell builtin (i.e. it's provided by the shell itself). You might be able to use restricted versions of other shells to limit the commands they can use, but this will restrict opther functionality. Failing that, the only solution I see is get the source code to the other shells, remove the functionality, and recompile them. I don't see why you'd want to do this, though.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

You have a earlier thread in Linux-General http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=357756 , so I'm closing this one.
