Unix: Rewriting history


Hi,

Unix: Rewriting history;
Quote:
The history feature in Unix shells can save you a lot of time when typing long, fairly repetitious commands, but don't count on it to accurately represent history. By Sandra Henry-Stocker

June 16, 2013, 3:35 PM — The bash history feature is a commonly used feature that can save you a lot of time when repeating commands or issuing commands nearly identical to those you've entered previously. Still, some of the capabilities the history feature may not be obvious to the casual user. Let's look a little more deeply into how history works and how you might be able to get even more out of it.
