Multiple dot commands in alias file

I have created a number of Stars/Sids in the Sector file, and a dot command for each to display.

Also created a dot command to display them, byp[Mod - Happy Thoughts]ing the clicking of menus. Works good.

 

Then I have a similar dot command for each Star/Sid to display the fixes.

 

Imagine this:

 

Sector file...

 

[sTAR]

Star-1 AAA AAA BBB BBB

BBB BBB CCC CCC

 

And the Alias file....

 

.Star1-route .fd Star-1

.Star1-fixes .ff AAA BBB CCC DDD

 

 

That works good also, but is there a way to have the alias file command on one line?

 

.Star1 .fd Star1 ; .ff AAA BBB CCC DDD

 

 

Is there a format that I have not found where you can combine both dot commands on one line, or chain to a second dot command?

 

 

Thanks

Mark

Yeah, I did try that, finally, but not sure I got the right format.

 

It seems that as long as the command does not change you can have multiple commands on the line, i.e.

 

This works...

.star-1 .star-1-1 .star-1-2 .star-1-3 <- all diagrams. Each is an alis to a .fd command

.star-1-fixes .star-2-1-fixes .star-2-2-fixes <- all fixes. Each is an alias to a .ff command

 

 

But this will not...

.star-1 .star-1-route .star-1-fixes <- star route and star fixes. star-1-route is a .fd command and .star-1-fixes is a .ff command.

 

 

 

Unless anyone has actually see it work I just haven't found a combination that does.
