The CACHE is the name for the centralised repository in which all aspects of client settings are stored, exchanged and kept in good order for personal and shared usage. The CACHE contains the files (private and shared) used when playing Avalon (especially using the Umbra client) including: aliases, macros, targets, variables, autosets, highlights, gagging, tutorials, logs and messages.
Syntax: CACHE DIR.
Shows you the files in the big repository cache available for you.
Syntax: CACHE on its own.
Shows you the files in your private repository and files shared with you by others.
Syntax: CACHE SAVE <private file name> <public cache file name>.
Copies a private file, like one of your alias groups, into the public cache (with sharing permissions defining who can see/use it). This is only available for those with authority over the repository in the public cache into which their file is placed e..g. alias file for Mages will go into the Mages repository in the cache.
Detailed info on the ALIAS command, syntax, usage and concept can be found in HELP ALIAS.
