I am having a problem with the "source" command in bash (3.1-9).

I get the output
'lias ls='ls -F
If I type 'ls', I get
ls: invalid option --
If I type the alias command on the command line, it seems to work fine.
I have also tried this on a second computer and get the same results.

Have you RTFRA'd (for bash-3.1-9) and STFLA'd? It looks like doing these
would solve your problem.
