List Source for Bash Functions

If you use alias, then just typing alias will give you all the defined aliases, and alias alias_name will tell you what a particular alias does. For functions defined in .bashrc and other places, you can use:

    declare -f

which will give you the names of all functions currently defined, and:

    type function_name

which will give you the source for a particular function.

(declare -F will give names and sources, like alias does, but it's usually too much information)

  1. I think you got it the other way around. -f gives names and sources, -F gives only the function names.
