So you can do
% alias v18 "verbatim18 centres_show"
% v18 optional_ending
(whatever the verbatim18 command does)

Run alias once and the alias should remain with you until you quit.

Add the line to your ~/.profile and it will be run on login so you don't have to.

Usually aliases is for command shotcuts as for the first example of corona688 (Thanks BTW for joining, Im hopeless when I see csh...)
so if it just to display some string (a suite of char or words...) the command would be echo
This to say, what are you trying to do, for just displaying on your screen seems silly to me I am sure you want it for something else...

I am equally useless with csh, I just happened to have one installed, and banged on it like an army of monkeys until I found the magic combination that worked Smilie

Do I have to type in all of that code between ... and ... or just the first and last bit? (sorry to be obtuse!)

I let corona give you the csh version Smilie
The idea so you understand what we are trying to show you is, if you are for meSmilie still in ksh:
ls -lt

it will display the content of your directroy sorted by time...
now type
which lst

just to be sure its not already used...
so we create the alias:
alias lst='ls -lt'

and you can now test:

which should give you the same as typing the first command
