recording terminal commands


I'd like to print out all the terminal commands in it's "buffer" to a file, the ones you can bring back up by pressing the up arrow. It's called doskey in Windoze but I don't know what it's referred to in nix.

Any help much appreciated.

In most *nix shells it is "history"
