Newbie Alias/Variable question, coming from Zmud
 
In Zmud I had a very very basic alias, that I cannot for the life of me replicate in CMud

#ALIAS k {#VAR target %1;kill @target;speed up}

In Zmud, I could type k rabbit, and it would send the following
kill rabbit
speed up

I could then type k all by itself, and it would repeat the above
kill rabbit
speed up

however in CMUD it overwrites the variable with a null value if I re-send the command without a parameter.

You could just check if %1 is not null before overwriting your variable:
Code:
#alias k {#IF (%1 != %null) {#VAR target %1};kill @target;speed up}

That's exactly what I would like to do, but when trying to use your code it errors on having an Extra Brace.

No brace issue in his code....
Did you enter it on the command line, or try to insert it into your preexisting alias?

I pasted it to the command line, and got this error screen.

Ok, I resolved it this way.

#ALIAS k {#IF (%1 != %null) {#VAR target %1;kill %1;speed up};{kill @target;speed up}}

I tested and it's working now.
