I am trying to get the same functionality as on a Linux where the last argument can be inserted into a another command easily.


If you're using bash or zsh, the shortcut !$ works in the same fashion.

For example:

[user@localhost ~]$ echo "test" >> new_file
[user@localhost ~]$ cat !$
cat new_file
