README

This is a quick job, to have a local database, to collect _all_ commands
from ~/.bash_history

To couple with this, I have set a crontab job:
*/30 * * * * /home/vbatts/bin/bash_history.rb


and set in ~/.bashrc:
unset HISTFILESIZE
export HISTSIZE=10000
export HISTTIMEFORMAT="%F %T "
export HISTCONTROL="ignoreboth"


== USAGE
See the --help also,
Usage: bash_history [options]
--inspect inspect the data
-h, --history FILE use bash_history FILE instead of the default (~/.bash_history)
-d, --db FILE use database FILE instead of the default (~/.bash_history.db)
-l, --list list history
--fix fix times
--format FORMAT specify a different strftime format. (default is "%F %T")
-f, --find PAT find a command with pattern PAT
