I know that previously executed commands can be listed using "history" command. I'd like to know if i can find the time when a command was executed. Is there any log files from which i can fetch this info? pl let me know.
If the shell variable HISTTIMEFORMAT is set and not null, it is used as a format string for
strftime(3) to display the time stamp associated with each displayed history entry. No intervening blank is printed between the formatted time stamp and the history line.
