I am a dumb user, who works with LINUX (ubuntu 14) My newly purchased laptop forces me to use bash-shell, and it has .bshrc. I used to use C-shell before that and tried to copy its aliases from .cshrc to .bshrc with some obvious editing. One thing doesn't work though -- the deferred argument as an example - my .cshrc command :
alias rm 'mv -f \!* $HOME/zap'
when written in .bshrc as
alias rm = 'mv -f \!* $HOME/zap'
generates an error msg :
bash:alias: rm: not found bash:alias: mv -f \!* $HOME/zap: not found
(the directory "zap" was created by me in advance)
What should I use instead of "!*" ?
