I'm trying to come up with a command line that takes the shell's
history and cuts everything after the first space, uniq -c's it,
then sorts by which commands appear the most. The idea is to
tell you which commands appear most in your history and by how
Something like: history 1000 | cut ?? | uniq -c | sort
What I'm having trouble with is the cut switch that removes
everything after the first space.
I've tried cut -d' ' -f1, but it doesn't work for some reason.
Any ideas out there?
