Aye, I am now in the habit of doing this:

   $ which fredthing.sh
   $ vi `!!`

Although this still doesn't get around my original problem which can
be better described like this:

Suppose I have just written some great big nested convoluted for loop
that is checking status of a bunch of things and takes a bit of time.
Where a bit of time == 30 minutes+.

It then outputs the result and I realise I wanted it sorted on the
second column.
Then I have to make a choice, run it all again and add the '| sort' to
the end or
copy and paste it into a file and just run sort on that.
