I often use UP key to get commands entered previously. The shell show

Put in ~/.bashrc

export HISTCONTROL=ignoredups

Here I go and mention all these neat opportunities to try out other shells, and bash already has the feature that was requested. Darn(?). :-)

I'm not sure if that makes me happy for bash, or sad that the other shells won't have been tried, just for fun!
