in thread Gathering current ksh shell aliases in perl

Just out of curiosity, what operating systems do have that kind of API?

I vaguely recall Plan 9 having some level of FS type access to process internal state, but I may be pulling that out of the ether.

for(split(" ","tsuJ rehtonA lreP rekcaH")){print reverse . " "}print "\b.\n";

    Some OSses have an API to get some introspection about processes. Think SUNs Dtrace, or HPs Glance. I guess one could even consider /proc to be an API to get some introspection.

    But I don't know of an OS that allows querying for aliases.
