Nope not used for my bashes, they are using ~/.bash_hist, one thing I
saw was that it seemed every time I tried to launch a zsh, a file
~/.history.PID was created. ~/.history was history of my old zsh's

Now trying it on my computer at home.. same problem

BTW the .history.PID file contains just PID. 


 The eye of the compiler rests on the code!
