A very simple question, where is the data stored related to fzf?

I'd like to copy my "fzf history" from one machine to another... Can't seem to find this mentioned anywhere.

History is stored in whatever file is specified with fzf’s --history option. Yours might be set in the FZF_DEFAULT_OPTS variable.


fzf is using your shell history, so you need to copy your old file (.bash_history for example).
