21.6. Command History

Previously executed commands are stored in a history list. You can access this list to verify commands, repeat them, or execute modified versions of them. The history built-in command displays the history list; the predefined variables histchars and history also affect the history mechanism. There are a number of ways to use the history list:

  • Rerun a previous command

  • Edit a previous command

  • Make command substitutions

  • Make argument substitutions (replace specific words in a command)

  • Extract or replace parts of a command or word
