Hi guys,
Id like to issue 2 commands to linux one after the other and just would like your help.
This is what im trying to do.

In the .bashrc file, i have a list of aliases that I have entered which save me time with certain things.
One of them is as follows....

alias viewbash='grep alias ~/.bashrc'

So, if from a command line, i enter...

viewbash

I get a listing of all my aliases in the file .bashrc

What Id like to do is to enter

viewbash

at a command line,

but to first clear the screen before issuing the listing of all aliases.

I dont know how to change

alias viewbash='grep alias ~/.bashrc'

to a way to first clear the screen, the run

alias viewbash='grep alias ~/.bashrc'

Thank you.
