@ALIAS[name] :  Returns the contents of the specified alias as a string, or a null string if the alias doesn't exist.


When manipulating strings returned by @ALIAS you may need to disable certain special characters with SETDOS /X. Otherwise, command separators, redirection characters, and other similar characters in the alias may be interpreted as part of the current command, rather than part of a simple text string.




alias xyz=d:\path\myprog.exe -options

echo %@alias[xyz]
