History Meme

This seems to be some sort of trend at Planet GNOME.

history|awk '{a[$2]++ } END{for(i in a){print a[i] " " i}}'|sort -rn|head
96 ls
89 cd
78 make
33 rm
23 wget
22 grep
19 mv
16 sudo
16 kate
15 tar

What does it tell you? I tend to move about and look for files, make stuff, remove files, download things, search for strings using grep (preferably followed by some sed magic and xargs to open kate with the relevant files). Finally, I edit using Kate and build daily deliveries using tar.

What I find odd is that there is no source revision system there...
I have 'git' at place 3 and 'vng' at place 5 :)

Nice, I like it very much! :) And here is mine:

128 cd
108 su
55 ls
49 pacman
44 vi
43 telnet
34 less
32 find
25 smbstatus
25 nano

thomas> odd, but not my decision. That is what happens when you are paid to work in a given environment.

milan> pacman almost as much as ls? :-)

So this is my pattern:

178 su
156 exit
49 xhost
15 vim
15 cd
13 ls
11 ps
8 killall
6 rm
6 dmesg

I use a different account for kde development (xhost + su). I almost always close my session properly (exit). I'm not an emacs user (vim) and I regularly kill mplayer because the firefox mplayer plugin is extremely buggy (ps + killall). Apart from that I almost only use the CLI for deleting files all over the file system (cd + ls + rm). Oh, and I have a computer architecture exam on monday (dmesg).

For me it's nothing surprising:

181 cd
125 make
91 ls
55 su
45 qmake
45 joe
30 mc
28 df
22 qt44
20 svn

qt44 is a short script that sets my environment for the latest Qt4.4 build, the remaining ones are obvious.
