It's True You can load an old bash History!
See Last Weeks Post For More on Bash History
So this could be easily adapted into a script that should in essence move through your entire History and add each old history to a new super long history. But anyway here's how to load an old bash history.
So first off as opposed to last time when we were working with the
.bash_profile file this time were working with the
So a little aside about this cool file. The
.bashrc file is a file your terminal runs before it opens. Due to this fact you can add commands to it that the terminal will run as it opens. So this would be a kind of a hacky way to do this and I know there are more elegant ways to due this. I need to explore bash commands more in general mean shit theres probably a way to do this with straight up bash commands any way. This cooooool
.bashrc file can run commands as you open the file. Now that I think of it. I could probably write a command in my
.bash_profile that does this...
.bashrc runs commands as the terminal opens so there's definitely a little loop in there that would make a super history. Set the HISTFILESIZE and HISTSIZE to super large and then loop throught all the
.bash_session/....historynew files and
history -a them all. Followed up by a
history -r and voila super file throuretically.
nano ~/.bash_profile-into your terminal
- In your
.bash_profilefile at the very top enter this code
HISTFILE=<history file you want to open thats probable bash_session/.../<somenumbers>.historynew`
reload your terminal
- Voila -
