dash manual, under
Builtins section there exists explanation on
fc built in which controls shell history and re-executes commands from it,
HISTSIZE also are mentioned there. Yet when I try to execute it
dash gives command not found error.
$ echo one one $ fc -l 1 dash: 2: fc: not found $ fc dash: 3: fc: not found
Question is, why ? Is it one of the standard and conscious choices that Ubuntu developers made or I may need to enable
fc somehow ?
I have found Debian bug report that mentions
fc, but the patch mentioned there is for i386 and last activity on the report has been in 2008, so nothing regarding Ubuntu so far. And historically, fc has had fixes and exists in versions for different BSD releases, so there's gotta be something Ubuntu-specific or Debian-specific here.
