  • If I understand correctly, you simply typed

    alias perlobj='/usr/perl5/5.6.1/bin/perldoc perlobj'

    If this is what you did, then it's just normal that those definitions go away with your session.

    That's what files such as .bashrc are for (try adding your alias line to it; the file should be in your home directory and is run every time you open a shell; if the name of the file isn't .bashrc for Solaris, it's probably something like .profile).

    • If you learn by making mistakes, I oughta be Einstein by now. That is exactly what I did. And, of course, when I enter 'alias' on the command line the computer shows me alias in .profile (or .login or whatever). The system shows all alias but not where they are located.

      Staggeringly obvious - when you see it.

      Thanks, cog!

      By the way, your English is amazing. I would never have guessed it was not your first language (my assumption since you were born in Portugal). The only thing that might possibly give you away is your grammar is better than that of the average American. I am awed.
