it's an alias to summon the command history only for lazy people well for busy too

alias h='history'
typing history it's a long way but typing only h it's my way it works in whatever distro or OSes or shells that you use, you know, only for easyness :)
Sample Output
  448  df
  449  ./wlan111
  450  mc
