Create an alias for a version of informix software.

Do this for software not installed in /infx/sw.

Create an alias e.g. "latest", then point multiple instances at an alias and upgrade them all at the same time.


infx inst func=ialias inst alias sw
     create alias for an informix directory
         inst - instance name
         alias - alias name
         sw - informix software to use


test01@bobii:/home/informix>infx inst func=ialias sw=IIF_11.70FC4TL alias=full inst=test01

/infx/sw/full -> /infx/sw/IIF_11.70FC4TL
