exit the shell and open another one, and then edit the ~/.bash_history file

Thanks mate. Another invaluable tip. But is there some way to automate that process instead of editing everytime?

Code:
history -c
will clear the entire history i think

and i think putting something like
Code:
unset HISTFILE
in your .bashrc will not keep a history altogether
