Very interesting review of the most often used commands on your *NIX machine. Here is my list

195 pico
131 cd
102 ls
58 uptime
47 exit
38 ps
34 clear
32 mytop
27 /etc/init.d/httpd
26 /etc/init.d/mysqld
23 tail
23 cat
22 mysql
20 sh

    If you run a lot of homemade scripts (or even aliases), then the list unfortunately doesn’t mean as much (assuming you are just interested in proper *NIX commands.)

    Here are mine, though:

    389 vi
    283 cd
    45 ls
    41 vrefs
    15 grep
    15 make
    14 sync
    13 uptime
    10 df
    9 less
    9 gen_banrules.sh
    9 banip
    8 finger
    7 tail
    7 man
    7 date
    6 rm
    6 pwd
    6 mysqldiff

    Also, a small change to the script (to sort reverse numeric):

    history|awk ‘{print $2}’|awk ‘BEGIN {FS=”|”} {print $1}’|sort|uniq -c|sort +0 -1 -rn | less

    Cheers.

    Change the last sort call to: sort +0 -1 -rn

    Cheers.

    $ history|awk ‘{print $3.17 ($2)}’|awk ‘BEGIN {FS=”|”} {print $1.58 ($1)}’|sort|uniq -c|sort -r
    bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Ketsugi,
    take the <code&gt out of the statement.
