Re: [HTCondor-users] set an alias in the job-wrapper-script

Hi Christoph,

Bash does not expand aliases for "non-interactive" shells, unless the "expand_aliases" shopt option is set. So if you want to do your thing with ". file.txt" to get aliases into a shell, you'll need to do it like:

	shopt -s expand_aliases

	. file.txt

Alternatively, you might want to consider using shell functions instead of aliases.

Hope that helps,

Subject: [HTCondor-users] set an alias in the job-wrapper-script


maybe this is more a question for the bash-wizards, I try to export an alias inside the job-wrapper-script in a way that it gets set inside the job environment. I tried alias.... and . file.txt with the alias in file.txt but I can't get it into the job environment.

Is there a more clever way that I just don't see at the moment ?
