I am trying to reuse alias variables while defining other aliases in
.bashrc file as shown below:
alias cwd='cd /work/local/assignment1' alias module1='$(cwd)/module1'

cwd='cd /work/local/assignment1' alias module1='$cwd/module1'
As suggested by @StephenHarris, you may want to add the following to get your
cwd working as usual:
