alias -clear                  Clears all aliases.
alias -global                 Show the global aliases.

Substitution variables that exist are:
     $# - Where # is the number of the word after the verb to substitute.
     $* - Will be substituted with everything after the verb.

Prefixing the alias verb with a $ allows you to set up a verb that does not
require a space after it. i.e. 'alias $' say $*' will allow you to do says as:
'Hey! This is most Stufly!

Look at the default aliases for examples.
Note: $* is added to all aliases, unless was already part of it.
