That history meme

I haven’t participated in these memes before, but I thought I’d give this one a try.

$ history|awk '{a[$2]++ } END{for(i in a){print a[i] " " i}}'|sort -rn|head
126 ls
117 bzr
104 clear
96 eg
79 cd
56 hg
37 less
22 svn
22 git
16 grep

Kind of embarassing. I don’t know why I type ‘clear<enter>ls<enter>’ so much, I just do. I know about ctrl-L too, but for some reason I just type ‘clear<enter>ls<enter>’ a lot during the day. *shrug*

    Thanks indirectly for the tip on CTRL-L!

    I am the same way. I think there’s a little bit of OCD in it. I realised that my stats were so small because I have been (urk!) stuck in Windows and logging in to my laptop remotely. Kinda changes the way you use the command line. ;-)
