From the bash man page :
The cmdhist shell option, if enabled, causes the shell to attempt
to save each line of a multi-line command in the same history entry,
adding semicolons where necessary to preserve syntactic correctness.
The lithist shell option causes the shell to save the command with
embedded newlines instead of semicolons. See the description of the
shopt builtin ... under SHELL BUILTIN COMMANDS for information on
setting and unsetting shell options.
dug into it and here is the gist:
optional feature of Bash history filtering that isn't always enabled
by default in distributions is cmdhist. This determines whether multi
-line commands are stored in the history as a single command (on) or
not (off; default).
To enable this feature, you would type
shopt -s cmdhist
To disable this feature, you would type
shopt -u cmdhist
not sure if this fixes the prob ... update: script and alias(s) work with cygwin as well
