Okay, so my question is, is it possible to make a very long (or any length) command into whatever you like, as in a phrase? I know you can do it in python, but can you do it for ubuntu's terminal command? I would like to shorten a rather lengthing command into a short word, or word phrase. I run a uTorrent server, and i usually have to start it by entering the command to start the internal server. for this, i have to go to a web page, copy and paste it into terminal. So, instead of putting the command, put something like "start utorrent' and it executes the command?
