Abstract

The "history" command in uses run the "fc -l" command to display the contents of the user's command history file. The command history file lists commands by number. This is a useful technique to retrieve the last set of commands that were entered on the command line. The history file contains hundreds of commands, but they do not indicate who typed in the command and what day/time they were entered.
