I do not agree. Aliases are much simpler to use than functions.

Please provide examples.

The following is a part of my aliases. I'll have to write much more code if
I define them all as functions.

    This is "much more code":

F(){ find "$@"; }

    than:

alias F=find

I don't think functions are better than aliases here. Any idea?

    Many reasons why functions are generally better have already been
    given.
