Arguments carrying over?
 
I've had a slight problem with a way I used to use to daisy-chain two aliases together - something like this

#alias hl {hamstring @target left;#if (!%null(%1)) {#exec %1}}
#alias sl {slash @target;#if (!%null(%1)) {#exec %1}}
etc.

At the moment, if I use "hl sl" then the second alias seems to retain the arguments from the first alias, thus sending me into an endless loop. Anyone know if there's something I'm doing wrong that could fix this?

That shouldn't be creating an infinite loop, surely. One thing you could try is using named arguments:

#alias hl($hlarg) {hamstring @target left;#if (!%null($hlarg)) {#exec $hlarg}}

Definitely loops like a bug. Added to the bug list.
