Since I use Dotfiles, which comes bundled with many alias, it is easy to lose track of the exact commands an alias refers to..
This morning, I typed
gl on my zsh bash, thinking it is
git log, but turned out it is
2 bash commands
type will resolve what the alias is for:
$ type gl $ gl is an alias for git pull
Another command is
alias, which will list all of the current aliases.
