I want to make an alias that sends a message including %0 to the MUD/MUSH. However, %0 automatically sends the original alias to the MUSH
(alias) -> (send) -> (resulting output)
I'm getting
alias command -> %0 -> alias command
I want to get
alias command -> %0 -> %0
I tried
alias command -> \%0-> alias command

Use %%0. The first % escapes the second one and sends it literally.
