history - Command history.


history history <number> history <number,number>


History is used to review the most recent commands you have typed. You can also redo these commands in a number of ways. Each of the commands in the history list has a number next to it.

If you type > history you'll get a list of your last commands. These can be navigated with commands like

> history 150

which will give commands from number 150 onwards. If more commands are needed,

> history 150,190

will give the history between the two numbers.


> .34

will redo command number 34. If you type

> .ki

it will execute the most recent command that is remembered that begins with the letters ki. Also, as a shortcut, the command

> ..

will execute the most recent command. That being the last one you typed.

Using the syntax ^word1^word2 you can do a search and replace on the last command typed replacing every occurrence of word1 with word2.

> tell kaos bing?

Kaos is not logged in.

> ^kaos^khaos

You ask Khaos: bing?
