[etherlab-dev] Alias Addressing

I have a question regarding alias addressing. In page 12 of the 1.5.2 ethercat manual, it says that slave position can be specified by position addressing or alias addressing and refer to 7.1.2.

In 7.1.2, it says setting alias address by doing
ethercat alias [option] <alias>

  1.  However, my question is that does this command actually address slave by its alias number and configure network as alias address for all slaves?
  2.  Meanwhile, does etherlab actually support alias address?
  3.  If so, how to address number of slaves by its alias?
  4.  If each slave has different PDO mapping, how to address the PDO mapping for each slave based on alias.
