November 7, 2012

List your command history:

$ history

Clear command history:

$ history -c

$ !!

Execute Specific Command from List:

After executing the history command, you will see a list of all the commands you’ve executed with a number next to it. Bellow is the command you would use to execute a specific command from that list. All you would have to do is include the number next to that command as an argument.

$ ![number next to the command]


[user@1111111111 usr]$ history
8 cd /usr/bin/
9 cd ..
10 echo “test”
11 history

[user@1111111111 usr]$ !10
echo “test”
