Bug Description

Another proposal to be taken into consideration for a future release.

I'd like to be able to name (not 'describe') a command uniquely, e. g. with "commandname123".

Then I'd like to be able to start clicompanion with that very command name as an argument, so that commandname123 is run right on startup.

This might look like:

$ clicompanion -c commandname123

This would be very, very nice with clicompanion because then it would be able to start other token processes of clicompanion from within running commands, interlacing them, or to start clicompanion and maybe also terminate it from within shell scripts using its capabilities to handle variables.

Can this be done by alias-es ?
alias ls='ls -al'

I think the main point would not be the naming (e. g. via alias-es), but to immediately let the program run a command at start. Then surely the alias would make it easier.

You can even use a search function without alias

cliargument=$(grep "$VARCOM" ~/.clicompanion2 | cut -d ':' -f1 )

and still you would have to start the program

clicompanion -c cliargument

That is good idea.
