CHECKALIAS(1L)							CHECKALIAS(1L)

NAME
       checkalias - check to see if an alias is	defined.

SYNOPSIS
       checkalias alias, alias,	...

DESCRIPTION
       Checkalias  checks  the user file first,	and then the system alias file
       to try to find the specified alias or aliases.  If found, the value  of
       the alias is printed out, otherwise an error is generated.

       Note: this is in	fact a one-line	shell script;

	    elm	-c $*

BUGS
       Note  that  the	precedence  of	aliases	is user	file then system file.
       This means that a user can 'overload' an	alias by having	one defined in
       the  system file	also defined in	theirs.	 This shouldn't	turn out to be
       a problem, but is something for the system  administrator  to  keep  in
       mind when creating the system alias file.
