Re: RE : Repeat the last command type

Hi,

Enable the shell history by adding these lines to your profile ( or /etc/profile if you want it for all users ):

HISTFILE=$HOME/.sh_history
HISTSIZE=1000
export HISTFILE HISTSIZE

Then log out and log on again. Press "Esc" key, and then "k" key to "navigate" through your previous commands.

Charles,

Or just type 'ksh -o vi'.

The previous commands can be accessed by 'Esc - k'.

Re: RE : Repeat the last command type

you can also add ksh -o vi to /home//.profile

so every time you login history is set

Re: RE : Repeat the last command type

If you're using a korn shell (as advised in previous replies) type the word history to see the last ten commands. The output will be similar to this:

121 cd
122 ll

(ten lines in all).

r 121 will repeat command number 121 (cd).

If you want more than 10 lines, type history -n, where n is the number of commands you want to see: e.g. history -20 will produce 20 lines.

Re: RE : Repeat the last command type

You have to setup history support with shell. Try to add in /etc/profile as,

set -o vi
export HISTFILE=$HOME/.sh_history
export HISTSIZE=2500

and save it.

For future login, it will give you history of commands.

To get prev. command then,

a) Esc k
b) Esc /

hth.
Easy to suggest when don't know about the problem!

In some shell the command:

!!

repeats the last command you typed.
