I am not a root user & I don't have access to the global alias file which has all the aliases created, but I want to create some aliases which remain active only for the session I am logged in.
I use the command
alias x='cd /parent/child' to create an alias which will enable me to just type
x on the console & I change dir to /Parent/Child .
However, I want to create multiple aliases & I don't want to type each alias I create every time.
I tried putting all the alias='do this' lines in a file (gave it 777 permission) hoping that on running the file all these aliases would be created every time I login. But that didn't happen.
alias x='cd /parent/child' alias y='cd /a/b/c' alias z='tail -0f some.log'
I also tried this in the file but in vain:
alias x='cd /parent/child';alias y='cd /a/b/c';alias z='tail -0f some.log'
None of the alias names I tried were already present in the global alias. (I typed alias & saw the output on the screen).
