where alias saved?

step 1
[root@localhost ~]# alias
alias cp='cp -i'
alias l.='ls -d .* --color=tty'
alias ll='ls -l --color=tty'
alias ls='ls --color=tty'
alias mv='mv -i'
alias rm='rm -i'
alias which='alias | /usr/bin/which --tty-only --read-alias --show-dot --show-tilde'

step 2
[root@localhost ~]# cat ~/.bashrc
# .bashrc

# User specific aliases and functions

alias rm='rm -i'
alias cp='cp -i'
alias mv='mv -i'

# Source global definitions
if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then
        . /etc/bashrc

my question!

where these aliases stored? in which file??!!
alias l.='ls -d .* --color=tty'
alias ll='ls -l --color=tty'
alias ls='ls --color=tty'

Depends on exactly which OS you're using I think. I know in Solaris for ksh there's your own ksrhc file but also a system profile that everybody gets. There is probably a system-wide one on your server as well giving you those extra aliases which are not in your personal bashrc. However, I can't tell you exactly where that is from the info you've given.

Usually something like that would be stored in /etc somewhere. Try looking around in /etc and some of its subdirectories. Maybe run a grep alias * in /etc and see what files it finds.

To keep the forums high quality for all users, please take the time to format your posts correctly.

First of all, use Code Tags when you post any code or data samples so others can easily read your code. You can easily do this by highlighting your code and then clicking on the # in the editing menu. (You can also type code tags [code] and [/code] by hand.)

Second, avoid adding color or different fonts and font size to your posts. Selective use of color to highlight a single word or phrase can be useful at times, but using color, in general, makes the forums harder to read, especially bright colors like red.

Third, be careful when you cut-and-paste, edit any odd characters and make sure all links are working property.

Thank You.
