I'm using this command to get my last typed command:
history | cut -c 8- | tail -n 2 | head -n 1
It works very well in bash, removing the line numbers, but there is one problem I have with it, (er, annoyance, because I want just the command) and I'm piping this to the
xsel clipboard manager:
It also grabs the trailing new line / carriage return...
I know in some shells you can use:
echo "text \c"
I'm not sure how to incorporate that into
Extra points for the solution that is easiest to type on the fly :)
