ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

*SIGH* Man I miss crunch time....I've left behind contract work and now work 9 to 5 (sort of) but I miss those weekends before the deadline, a 24 of Jolt cola, a 12 of beer, some take out pizza and loud fast music to keep me going til Monday 9am
You should be able to do the alias as a normal user - root access isn't required. Aliases are a standard feature of any decent shell like bash.
If you want the alias to be permanent, you'll want to put the alias line in your .bashrc (that is ~/.bashrc). If your install is vaguely like mine, there should already be a few aliases in there, so you just add this one to them.
I'll need to get kvim back on my system (the package I was using wasn't based on the same version of standard vim, so they fought.)
Now this is turning into editor wars... EMACS!!! VI!!! EMACS!!! VI!!! TASTES GREAT!!! LESS FILLING!!!
I finally escaped from my programming and actually read LQ again!!!
Many thousands of ASM lines later and I'm still using the MPLAB IDE. Windows proggie... I know I know... I gotta use it since the only pcmcia serial card "unofficially" recommended by Microchip doesn't work in Linux. USB to serial adapter are basically junk and can't handle anything precise. They're only good for a mouse or a joystick.
MPLAB is essentially Notepad with an assembler, simulator, and burner bundled in. The Linux equivalent would be Vi, gpasm, and gpsim. I'd use them if I could.
Back to the trenches.... and an attempt at stripping down the PICLIST's 16 bit multiplication routines.
