A script-less basedir alias that works

Post by KenJackson »

The script basedir.sh in RosBE says:

Code: Select all

# An alias just to "cd $_ROSBE_ROSSOURCEDIR" won't work as bash only expands when executing the shell and then never again
cd "$_ROSBE_ROSSOURCEDIR"
But this works (double quotes required):

Code: Select all

alias basedir="cd \$_ROSBE_ROSSOURCEDIR"
So the alias in RosBE-rc could be replaced with that line and the basedir.sh file deleted.
