Afalias - alias files for af.
Af alias files contain alias lines and optional blank lines and comment lines. Comment lines begin with a semicolon (;). Alias lines look like: alias:real name:address list Aliases are case-insensitive non-NULL ASCII character strings, with any embedded colons preceded by a backslash. Real names are: double-quoted strings of non-NULL ASCII characters, with any embedded double-quotes preceded by a backslash; or, strings of non-NULL ASCII characters, with characters in the set ( ) < > [ ] @ , . ; : " % preceded by a backslash; or any combination of the two. In general, the obvious works: consult the Af Reference Manual for the fine detail in doubtful cases. Address lists are lists of comma-or-space-separated electronic mail addresses. For fine detail, consult the Af Reference Manual, and, if really desperate, RFC 822. Alias lines may be folded, with a newline followed by a space or TAB being equivalent to a single space. Folding may only occur after the alias and its following colon.
