Which terminal command do you use the most?

I rely on command history a *lot* and I was curious to know which commands I use the most. I found this on Reddit, and the results are interesting. You might have to tweak the command a bit to suit your shell.

$ history | awk '{CMD[$4]++;count++;}END { for (a in CMD)print CMD[a] " " CMD[a]/count*100 "% " a; }' | grep -v "./" | column -c3 -s " " -t | sort -nr | nl | head -n10
     1  1697  17.5491%    git
     2  1309  13.5367%    cd
     3  673   6.95967%    flamel
     4  520   5.37746%    find
     5  443   4.58118%    vi
     6  322   3.32989%    ll
     7  300   3.10238%    rm
     8  283   2.92658%    grep
     9  279   2.88521%    exit
    10  277   2.86453%    history

So which commands use up your day?

If I could give 3 thumbs up, I would.  That's a well-architected command-line.  Fantastic!
