Unix Tip #4561- September 6, 2013

QUICK UNALIAS


If you have aliased a command to somehting and want to quickly
unalias it, preceed the name with a backslash, '\', and it
will have the original meaning. For example, if you have 'rm'
aliased to 'rm -i' and want to remove one entire directory without
being prompted for each file, you would do:

$ \rm -fr dirname

where 'dirname' is the directory you want to trash.
