Adding an alias
 
I need to add an alias
Quote:

[root@localhost lib]# pwd
/usr/lib
[root@localhost lib]# cd ..
[root@localhost usr]# pwd
/usr
Instead of the ".." can I have something like "rr"
so that would make cd rr change the directory.

I want it this way

Quote:

root@localhost lib]# pwd
/usr/lib
[root@localhost lib]# cd rr
[root@localhost usr]# pwd
/usr
Is this possible?

A simple trial on my home machine didn't work, but you should be able to alias 'rr' to 'cd ..' just fine if it's that big an issue.
