Bash

Geekier way to run the previous command with sudo

Wanted to run a command in sudo context but forgot that. What do you do usually?

  • Hit the up arrow
  • Press ctrl+a or HOME button
  • Type sudo and hit ENTER.

There is a geekier way to do this. 🙂

 

Type:


$ sudo !!

Bash will expand the two exclamation points to the previous command and it will be run through sudo.
