Send history of current host to some other host over ssh

Sometimes I want to save the history of current host on another host. This is to ensure that I can use copy/paste on other host to run the commands. To this, I found a simple solution –

history| ssh <user>@<host> 'cat - > /tmp/history'

And on the new host, you can find the history in file “/tmp/history”, cool :). Now I can quick edit this file to create this as shell script as well if required. How cool is that.
