Your top 100 unix commands, for science!

Hey internet! I'm putting together a intro to unix workshop and I'd love to collect data about what Unix commands people are using.

The goal is to make the workshop as useful as possible by focusing on things that people actually use.

You can get this using:

history | sed "s/^[0-9 ]*//" | sed "s/ *| */\n/g" | awk '{print $1}' | sort | uniq -c | sort -rn | head -n 100 > commands.txt

and then open commands.txt and copy the contents

Please make sure there's nothing sensitive in there first!

Optionally you can say what kind of work you do.

I will also post an awesome blog post about this at http://jvns.ca

What are your top 100 unix commands? *
