First of all, the title "urgent" isn't helpful at all. For this thread, the title "bash script to display alias commands and un-alias any less than 12 characters" would be more appropriate. I only clicked on this link to begin with because I was bored, not because I had any idea whatsoever what you were even talking about. be honest, it looks like you spent the absolute minimal time possible typing your question. At the very least, go back and correct typos. Don't "fix" it with a "correction*" at the bottom, for 3 reasons. One, it just makes you look stupid. Sorry, but it does. And second, people then have to look through your post to see where you meant to correct. And lastly, it just goes to prove my first point that you spent as little time possible writing your post, not even taking the 3.6 seconds it takes to move the cursor, then click, and then press the backspace key. On that same point, you probably could have taken a few seconds to insert characters where they needed to go.
