Replacing Last Command and Execute It
$ echo "hello world world world" hello world world world
If you want to replace
universe you can do
# If you use ZSH you can press `tab` at the end of the line and it will replace # the whole line with the actuall command $ ^world^universe $ echo "hello universe world world"
As you can see, it only replace the first matching word.
If you want it to replace the whole match:
# zsh $ ^world^universe^:G # bash $^world^universe^&
Don’t use it in production
I tend to use
fc command which allow me to edit the command in my editor first
