I’ve had a lot of fun recently posting about how to do stuff on the command line in Linux. My focus is specifically for Ubuntu users, but the information and techniques can be used for any Linux distro.
Since I’m probably going to end up with a lot of content under this topic, I’ve decided to create a dedicated tag: Mastering the Command Line. I’ve gone through my older posts on this topic and tagged them as well. So, make sure to check out Mastering the Command Line if you want to know how to become a command line power user.
Back to today’s topic. You’re starting to learn how to use the command line, but it’s annoying to always have to type in similar commands over and over. If only there were a way to pull up commands that you’ve already run to run again as is or to quickly modify. Today, I’m going to teach you how to do exactly this.
