I've just added this to my bash profile ....
export HISTIGNORE="&:ls:ls *:[bf]g:exit"
Now I want to remove all the duplicates from the history file
is there a command that will take in standard input,remove
duplicate lines and output to standard out ?
I've been doing this but it sucks ...
cat ~/.bash_history | egrep -v "shorewall|ls|rm\./|chmod"
I'm sure theres something in the toolbox for this ....
