If I want to run the last instance of foo, I can do:


What if I want to use the last instance of sub command foo bar? Using:

!foo bar

Will result in using the last foo command and appending bar.

    !?bar might do for you if bar is sufficiently unique. You can also use ^Rfoo bar. – DopeGhoti May 2 '17 at 17:26
