    The following form allows you to view linux man pages.

    Command:

    yum-aliases

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           yum [options] alias
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           This  plugin changes other commands in yum, much like the alias command
           in bash. There are a couple of notable  differences  from  shell  style
           aliases though. The alias command has three forms:
            * alias
            * alias command
            * alias command result
    
           The  first  form lists all current aliases with their final result, the
           second form looks up a "command" and shows  it's  final  result  or  an
           error message. The last form creates a new alias.
    
    
    

    Explanation of alias to final result conversion

           When  you type an aliased command, like "yum --disableexcludes UPT lsu"
           using the default aliases, the yum-aliases plugin first takes the first
           "command",  by  skiping  over any options, and then looks up the result
           (in this case "UPT" is converted to "--enablerepo=updates-tesintg"). If
           there  is  a  match,  then it will replace the aliased "command" in the
           argument list and try again (again skipping over any options). By  con-
           vention,  in the default aliases list, alias "commands" that are in all
           CAPS only add options so you can join together a chain of  them  before
           any real command or aliased command.
    
           There  are two things that can alter the above, if you have the "recur-
           sive" configuration option set to off then alias processing  will  stop
           after  the  first  alias  to  command substitution. Also, like in shell
           aliases, if the result starts with \ then alias processing will stop.
    
    
    

    EXAMPLES

           To create a new alias command called "rm" which does the same thing  as
           the command "remove" use:
    
                  yum alias rm remove
    
           To  always  add  the  --skip-broken  --disableexcludes=all  --obsoletes
           options to the update command (but leaving the upgrade  option  alone),
           you could use:
    
                  yum  alias  update  \update  --skip-broken --disableexcludes=all
                  --obsoletes
    
           To override the default "up" alias to use the above update command, and
           never ask for confirmation, you could use:
    
                  yum alias up update -y
