That assumes you use the bash shell. If you use a different shell, ~/.bashrc might not be valid.

comment is it possible to create a macro-like user defined shell command?
Creating an alias like this is only valid for the current shell session. It won't be available in new terminal windows, nor will it be available after logout / login. To keep it persistent, it needs to be added to the user account's dot-files, which based on the OP's other questions is a little bit too advanced for today.
