Shell History Meme

Following the rest of shell history meme’s on Planet Fedora:

[bpepple@nixon Desktop]$ history | awk ‘{a[$2]++ } END{for(i in a){print a[i] ” ” i}}’|sort -rn|head
144 make
105 ps
95 su
92 kill
87 svn
77 exit
74 cd
56 ls
51 gst-inspect
29 rpm

Hmm, little different results than I would have expected, but makes sense since I was hacking on a nautilus extension that uses gstreamer over the weekend.
