Alias support with the Rapier Series Switches

Does the command line interface of the Rapier support aliases, and how do I configure it?

The command line interface supports aliases. An alias is a short name for an often-used longer character sequence. When the user presses [Enter] to execute the command line, the command processor first checks the command line for aliases and substitutes the replacement text. The command line is then parsed and processed normally. Alias substitution is not recursive. The command line is scanned only once for aliases.

Aliases are created and destroyed using the commands:

ADD ALIAS=name STRING=substitution
DELETE ALIAS=name


A list of all the aliases defined on the Switch and their replacement strings can be displayed using the command:
