  • In csh, the alias syntax would be:

        alias stringgrep 'grep -r \!* .|grep -vE "svn|blib"'

    I suspect the bash syntax is similar.
    • No, there isn't an equivalent syntax for Bash aliases. This is because in C Shell the ! there is a history substitution, and history works differently in Bash from in C Shell.

      As others have said, use a function; there isn't really any advantage in using a Bash alias over a function (other than you're more likely already to know the alias syntax).

      I think this should do what you want (untested):

      function kerplop
        grep -r "$@" . | grep -vE 'svn|blib'
