@greenpete I can't count the number of times I've forgotten the specific syntax or flags of a command I typed a while back — and have had to use 'reverse-i-search' to quickly find it.

It's a life saver. A history size of 1 million is practically infinite.

FYI the following is in my '.zshrc' config file:

export HISTFILE=~/.zsh_history
export HISTSIZE=1000000
export SAVEHIST=1000000
setopt INC_APPEND_HISTORY
setopt HIST_FIND_NO_DUPS
setopt HIST_IGNORE_ALL_DUPS
