Alias is a command that assigns a keyword to an action so as to shorten the amount of typing required. Up to 20 in-game aliases may be saved for a character, though MUD clients such as zMUD allow an unlimited amount.
In Game Description
Syntax: alias <keyword> <action> The alias function allows you to make a limited number of short actions which are then referenced by the keyword, in order to allow a complicate or often used action to be performed without constant typing. Example: > alias bf channel 'balefire' This would allow the channeler to simply type bf <victim> in order to channel balefire at them rather than the entire spell. > bf trolloc [channel 'balefire'] Searing white light vaporizes the trolloc as though it was never alive. To remove an alias, using the bf alias above as an example, type "alias bf"
