Detail

Order of precedence

There is an order of precedence for which commands are looked up:

  1. test and pipe functions because they alter the behavior of the compiler
  2. Aliases - defined via alias. All aliases are global
  3. murex functions - defined via function. All functions are global
  4. 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 from the interactive command line
  5. variables (dollar prefixed) - declared via set or let
  6. auto-globbing prefix: @g
  7. murex builtins
  8. external executable files
