   !<string pattern>        : This will match the most recent command which
                              starts with <string pattern>.
   !!                       : This will repeat the last command.
   !!<args>                 : This will append <args> to the last command,
                              and execute it.
   ^^<args>                 : This will prepend <args> to the last command,
                              and execute it.
   ^<pattern 1>^<pattern 2> : This will substitute <pattern 1> in the last
                             command with <pattern 2>, and execute it.
