Summary0005112: Add option to display a content of a file with a 'aliased' command
DescriptionSometimes we might want to add some commands to display to users certain rules or some other help.

So, I was thinking of adding something to the configuration file like:
command <name> { showfile "/path/to/file" };

This would help for specific users cases only, but I still think it's a pretty neat idea. :D

Any thoughts/feedback would be appreciated, especially from the ones that would be interested in a feature like this.

Edit: basically, the idea is to the command just print to the user the content of the file, as is, respecting new lines, and so on.

Would be nice also, if the file could be loaded with remote includes.

Yes, it would be a good idea.

Perhaps this can be implemented by a module so we can later incorporate it.
Like alter m_staff or something like that (though that one has bug 0004891)

Acknowledged, but not a target for 4.0.19.
