Order of precedence
There is an order of precedence for which commands are looked up:
runmode: this is executed before the rest of the script. It is invoked by the pre-compiler forking process and is required to sit at the top of any scripts.
pipefunctions also alter the behavior of the compiler and thus are executed ahead of any scripts.
private functions - defined via
private. Private's cannot be global and are scoped only to the module or source that defined them. For example, You cannot call a private function directly from the interactive command line (however you can force an indirect call via
Aliases - defined via
alias. All aliases are global.
Murex functions - defined via
function. All functions are global.
Variables (dollar prefixed) which are declared via
let. Also environmental variables too, declared via
globbing: however this only applies for commands executed in the interactive shell.
External executable files
You can override this order of precedence via the
Compatibility with POSIX
For compatibility with traditional shells like Bash and Zsh,
builtin is an alias to
alias: Create an alias for a command
autocomplete: Set definitions for tab-completion in the command line
bg: Run processes in the background
builtins: Returns runtime information on the internal state of Murex
event: Event driven programming for shell scripts
exec: Runs an executable
fg: Sends a background process into the foreground
function: Define a function block
jobs: Lists all running functions within the current Murex session
open: Open a file with a preferred handler
private: Define a private function block
source: Import Murex code from another file of code block
