How can I use another alias command inside another alias?
« on: May 24, 2008, 01:40:49 PM »
I have created an alias command sends emails. And I would like to use this alias command in other aliases. Is that possible?

not sure i get the question

however, if you want to call an alias from another alias, you can use the restartsearch command

call alias | restartsearch nameofthealias

then FARR will "restart" the search with "nameofthealias"

it is a way to create menus with different level :

alias 1 | restartsearch alias1
alias 2 | restartsearch alias2
alias 3 | restartsearch alias3

then :
alias1 is :
subalias 1 | restartsearch subalias1
subalias 2 | restartsearch subalias2
subalias 3 | restartsearch subalias3

you can also go back using restartsearch...
