Why are these aliases failing?

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I am attempting to put some alias definitions in .bashrc. Like this: #Convienience aliases alias ll='ls -l' alias ldir='ls -p | grep "/"' #Temporary aliases alias mvFooLog='mv ~/Projects/Foo/Log.txt .' The last alias will work for me, but there seems to be some subtlety which is corrupting the definition of the first two. When Looking at the output of alias in the console, I get something like the following: 'lias ldir='ls -p | grep "/" 'lias ll='ls -l alias mvFooLog='mv ~/projects/foo/log.txt . This is happening in cygwin. (HowTos)
