I am still wondering if I will be able to get the alias to work without changing the shells.... I don't understand why it isn't working...

Have you found a program called "alias"? If not then "alias" is an internal command. The "popen" program uses the default shell, if this does not support "alias", it will fail.

Oh.. No I didn't find it... I really should learn more before I ask all these doubts I guess... Hehe... Sorry for the trouble though... and thank you...

No problem, it is important to realise there are internal and external commands.

In theory you should only need about three internal commands, "cd", "exit" and "exec". Smilie

It gets confusing with things like "echo" where it's typically internal and external and behaves differently depending on the shell or your path.

Or not really, this stuff is over quarter of a century old here.

Smilie Yeah yeah.. I bet they'll improve a thousand times in a couple of more decades...
