Hi Eartha,

You have a nice command to solve your problem in Red Hat Linux.

Aliases are shortcut names for longer command. If you want to create aliases for clear command , you need to edit a file name /home/[user name]/.bashrc

An example is given below.

Open the file name /home/[user name]/.bashrc file with vim command and edit this as follows

# vi /home/[user name]/.bashrc

alias lf=”ls -FCa “

alias c=”clear”

alias rm=”rm -I “

Here “c” is a short form for command “clear”
