I am new to linux and was wondering whether it is possible to create abbreviations that can be used in terminal. I know about
alias command, but am not sure whether that can be used for what I am looking for.
Example: Say I often need to copy stuff from folder
~/Dropbox/thisfolder. I know that I can create a shortcut to switch to this folder by creating an alias, such as,
alias tf="cd ~/Dropbox/thisfolder"
However, if I do
then, I cannot use commands such as
cp justpath/blahfile ./. Is it possible to do something like this using some other way to abbreviate the path
