Nice video.

I have a unix related question. Could not find a relevant post, so just asking it here. Apologies for that.

How can I pass a variable to a child korn-shell? I often do rsh to different servers using their alias.

ex. rsh box1 (where box1 is the alias for the physical hostname xxyyzz123). Now i want the new shell to remember the alias I used to come here (i.e. box1).

Is there a way I can achieve the above? I tried exporting box1, but obviously it didn't work.

Will appreciate any help.
