On this Debian Jessie installation, Bash history seems to be behaving inconsistently in Gnome Terminal:
$ echo $USER me $ echo $HISTFILE /home/me/.bash_history $ grep browser ~/.bash_history browser-sync start $ history | grep browser 2071 grep browser ~/.bash_history 2073 history | grep browser
browser-sync line from the
~/.bash_history file is quite old: much older than the current Terminal session. Why isn't it showing up in the results from
history | grep browser?
