I saw Andrew Shebanow‘s post about the History Meme, and had to try it myself. Here are my most common shell commands (on Mac OS X), with counts:
103 svn 64 cd 44 ssh 36 mvn 26 rsync 26 ll 16 sh 16 perl 15 ping 13 ls
Not sure what my most common shell commands says about me as a person, other than I’m a heavy user of Subversion and Maven, and I have to frequently access and move files to/from a bunch of servers at our office and colo.
And as Tim Bray pointed out, it doesn’t say anything about the tools I use the most – OmniFocus, Eudora, and Eclipse. But still, for one line of bash/awk it’s a fun peek into my daily tech life.
