Somewhere i read that an alias should never be an alias of itself,
something like alias rm='rm -i'
alias ls='ls --color=auto'
alias rm='rm -vi'
alias cp='cp -vi'
alias mv='mv -vi'
alias cal='cal -3m' # week starts on Monday
and I'm sure I got this idea from some reputable Unix books. This way
rm always asks *except* when you use -f.
It works for sure, because somewhere i use it too.
I was meaning about the comcept:
because if you get use of this approach, when you go to work on a
machine that doesn't have this alias, immagine what you coul do if you
write rm /etc/apache/* because you are sure (or you don't pay
attention) that would ask you to confirm.
Since i read that article (it was on a magazine), i try to don't use
this kind of aliases and to pay more attention on what i'm doing.
