    bash history line


    hey i'm new to all of unix and i'm kinda in a pickle atm... ..
    i need to make a program in bash that prints out the commands used by a user with the posibility of chosing the period in wich the command was typed and no i cannot use the "history" command, need it to be in editing mode, it needs to be a program in bash :/

    if anyone can help me out i'd really appreciated. thank you very much

    Are you giving us homework?
    You can use
    Code:
    cat /home/<user>/.bash_history
    to see what a user has executed. But to know the time detail...

    uhmm that's just the point i can't use just the history command, it has to be a script in bash and i don't really care about the chosing the period thing, but i really need the script for the history

    and yeah i'm giving ya homework
