There are several ways to manipulate history in zsh. One way is to use csh-style ! history:
% /usr/local/bin/!:0 !-2*:s/foo/bar/ >>!$
If you don't want to use this, you can turn it off by typing
Another way is to use the
fc command. For example, if you type
an erroneous command:
% for i in `cat /etc/clients` do rpu $i done zsh: command not found: rpu zsh: command not found: rpu zsh: command not found: rpu ...
fc will execute an editor on this command, allowing you to
fix it. (The default editor is
vi, by the way, not
% fc 49 /rpu/s//rup/p rup $i w 49 q for i in `cat /etc/clients` do rup $i done beam up 2 days, 10:17, load average: 0.86, 0.80, 0.50 bow up 4 days, 8:41, load average: 0.91, 0.80, 0.50 burn up 17:18, load average: 0.91, 0.80, 0.50 burst up 9 days, 1:49, load average: 0.95, 0.80, 0.50 tan up 11:14, load average: 0.91, 0.80, 0.50 bathe up 3 days, 17:49, load average: 1.84, 1.79, 1.50 bird up 1 day, 9:13, load average: 1.95, 1.82, 1.51 bonnet up 2 days, 21:18, load average: 0.93, 0.80, 0.50 ...
A variant of the
fc command is
r, which redoes the last
command, with optional changes:
% echo foo foo % r echo foo foo % echo foo foo % r foo=bar echo bar bar
