Find old bash commands in Linux

Use a wicked one-liner last week, but forget what it was? Search your bash history with grep! If you remember part of the command, you may be able to dig it up.

I was messing around with php-cs-fixer last week, and could not remember what commands I tried out. Searching with

history | grep fixer

found me:
