Meme du Jour

Interesting. I was quite surprised by this myself.

# history|awk '{a[$2]++ } END{for(i in a){print a[i] " " i}}' |sort -rn|head
135 svn
134 ls
87 vi
76 postmap
57 cd
45 more
36 ps
35 /etc/init.d/httpd
33 /usr/sbin/postfix
32 grep

This is on my (virtual private) web server, where I've been editing fairly heavily recently.

You move around a lot less than I do:

96 cd
89 svn
86 python
75 ls
48 hg
26 vim
11 open
10 rm
6 mv
6 grep

Actually that's not quite true: I use screen, so if I'm going to be working in a specific directory for a while I will cd to it and then switch back to that screen when I need it. This is invisible to my history.

This underlines the basic meaninglessness of the statistics, of course, but it's interesting to watch the meme travel!

Why it should not be done in a Python one-liner
