Separate Shell Command history

One other suggestion on how to separate shell command history files by terminal (It works on

Change the permissions of your
.sh_history to 000.

$ chmod 000 .sh_history

After this is done, the various shells that may exist will not save every command to the file
thus keeping the history in memory. Since every memory is different, as every shell is run
in a different process, every shell will have its own history (in memory) of commands.
