Clear previous commands in Terminal
Hi mates,

A primitive query but how to clear the previous commands in terminal which is accessed by using up/down arrow keys?

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?

history -c
will clear the entire history i think

and i think putting something like

in your .bashrc will not keep a history altogether
