What was my alias again?

Often I found myself looking in ~/.zshrc to find out what alias exactly I have defined for some task. That can be done easier. The bash command alias lists all your aliases. My list of aliases is quite long, so I find my alias this way:

alias | grep some-name
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Nice tip. Am I the only one that literally read the title of this to the Blink 182 song though? And the fact that your name is Tom was just icing on the cake.

I didn't think of Blink 182 when I wrote that title, but now I can't get the song out of my head ;)
