A simple and nifty way to define aliases in NSClient++. Aliases are good for defining commands locally or just to simply the nagios configuration. There is a series of "useful" aliases defined in the included configuration file which is a good place to start. An alias is an internal command that has been "wrapped" (to add arguments). If you want to create an alias for an external command you can do so but it still needs the normal defnition and the alias will use the internal alias of the external command.
WARNING Be careful so you don't create loops (ie check_loop=check_a, check_a=check_loop)
