According to donglongchao on 5/16/2008 11:28 PM:
|  We could put the current point to the location of the command which is
just executed by us,so that we could find the near commands we need
immediately,and don not need to press the key of 'up' or 'down' many many
times.

The 'reverse-search-history' readline command, bound by default to
control-r, seems like the perfect fit for what you are describing - a
shortcut for rapidly searching through only the commands that contain a
particular substring, rather than having to cycle through every single
recent command with the 'up' and 'down' arrows.

Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
