Did You Know?

The C shell assumes that that the arguments are always placed at the end of the command alias.

For example, you define an alias that gives members of your group access to a file or directory:

   alias ggive 'chmod g+'

Any argument that you give to the alias ggive is placed after the command it refers to. So the command alias

   ggive filename

is interpreted as:

   chmod g+ filename
