command line history – me too

I’ve seen this on a couple of blogs recently so I thought I’d give it a go on the VPS this site is hosted on:

steve@decaf:~$ history | awk '{a[$2]++} END {for(i in a)print a[i] " " i}' | sort -rn | head -10                                                                
190 ls                                                                          
80 cd                                                                           
24 cp                                                                           
22 sudo                                                                         
19 rm                                                                           
14 svn                                                                          
12 history                                                                      
11 tar                                                                          
10 wget                                                                         
10 vi

And as root:

172 ls                                                                          
59 vi                                                                           
56 cd                                                                           
22 apt-get                                                                      
20 less                                                                         
20 apache2ctl                                                                   
17 apt-cache                                                                    
15 cp                                                                           
10 pwd                                                                          
10 ps

I’m kinda suprised that ls comes out on top each time ;)

I wonder which commands Matt, Aidan and Philip have been using most?
