- How can I create an alias for cd and ls? 6 answers
For my first bash script, I want to create something that's really been annoying me: when I switch folders, I want the contents of that folder to be displated automatically. I tried adding this following code to ~/.bashrc:
alias go='cd; ls'
Simple enough I thought! Not so. While typing
go /etc does indeed list the contents of /etc, my working directory hasn't actually changed, I'm still in the one I was in before. How do I remedy this?
