S03E03 – Behind The Screen

17.03.10 | 17 Comments

Alan Pope, Dave Walker, Tony Whitmore and fluffy Tux & Firefox present episode three of season three of the Ubuntu Podcast from the UK LoCo Team.

In this week’s show:-

Bash stores your most recent commands as a command history. Most people are aware of being able to press the up and down arrow keys and Ctrl-R to scan through this history, but there are a couple of other ways to use it too.

You can type !cp and bash will repeat the last command that started with cp. As a special case, you can use !! to repeat the last command and !-n to go back n lines. You can also use ^string1^string2^ to repeat the last command with string1 replaced by string2.
