Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Can you take it a step further and limit it to one character, and not an unlimited number? I would still like to see history | grep and things in that manner, would like to exclude only "history" and "history "?
Well I am not sure I see the point as I am guessing you are trying to catch a typo, but my suggestion would be you could check out if turning on extgob will help you, or simply place both in HISTIGNORE
That works of course, but the whole point of my question was to make it more clever and learn something along the way... Just seemed kinda noobish.
grail, I'm going to mark your answer as solved regardless, thanks for spending your time on this with me.
