I needed to remove all duplicates from ~/.bash_history, and since it contains the date and time for each command, I ended up with lots of dates and times with no commands (since they were duplicates and got removed).

And I didn't want to check 34k+ of lines manually. So, I wrote a Python script to solve that.

in case you're interested, here is the code: gitlab.com/ds.python/useful-sc

#BASH #history #bashhistory #python #duplicates #duplicate #dedup #code #python3 #linux #gnulinux


Now you got me daydreaming about the concept of a potential `~/.history_unique`
