Hi!

Is there a command or settings to be done in unix that will saved all the commands to file typed at command prompt? I will need this for future reference without recreating all those commands again.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

You should find all these commands in a history file (depending on your shell).

The best is to type the following shell internal :

history

Bu if you want to find a file, it will be located in your home dir :

For sh : .history
For bash : .bash_history

...etc.

try echo $HISTFILE

It should give you the right file.
