I almost always use Maxima through a "smart" interface
(TeXmacs, in my case), that allows
retrieving previous command lines and editing them. So I
very seldom have to re-type the long
One thing that would help make long names easier to use is
command completion. In TeXmacs, it seems to be erratic (or
I'm missing something). I don't know about other
interfaces. Mathematica has long names, but
fully-implemented completion, and that makes life much easier.
Anyhow, I didn't know about "alias", that sounds very useful.
