Hi all hope you are well.
I am interested in a quick method (besides cut 'n' paste) of extracting my command history from a putty session (Linux version Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 3 (Taroon Update 9)) to a windows text file. Any ideas on that? Thanks for your time.

Well, wherever your history log is stored, just use echo "whateverthehistoryis" > "XXX.txt" Or find the history log and copy and paste the file into a new directory.

That simple ? lol Thanks a lot for your response, very helpful!

Even better try this:

echo |history > history.txt

Yeah, I was stating that echo something > file.txt would do that.

oh I didnt realise you meant with the pipe!lol
