I have set up an alias in my .bashrc as follows:
alias u='cd ..'
All is well in my world... until I type
cd .. and cringe that I did not use my incredible new alias. In fact, with this particular thing, it's very ingrained. Hard to change my behavior - I need serious intervention.
So, I naturally tried to set up another alias to keep me from using
alias 'cd ..'='echo "Use your alias!"'
But that apparently doesn't work. My thought is that this also might somehow conflict with the
u alias, in some sort of infinite loop of aliasing.
