Command: alias

Configure helper aliases for other DFHack commands.

Aliases are resolved immediately after built-in commands, which means that an alias cannot override a built-in command, but can override a command implemented by a plugin or script.


alias list

Lists all configured aliases

alias add <name> <command> [arguments...]

Adds an alias

alias replace <name> <command> [arguments...]

Replaces an existing alias with a new command, or adds the alias if it does not already exist

alias delete <name>

Removes the specified alias

Aliases can be given additional arguments when created and invoked, which will be passed to the underlying command in order.
