    I started playing around with terminal a bit and seem to be encountering a small problem. Whenever i begin typing in a command terminal capitalizes the first letter of the command. It has not been an issue for most commands. For example both Ls and ls work and give me the expected output. The history command is another story. If I type in history and let terminal change it to History I get
    Code:
    -bash: History: command not found
    however if I backspace over the H and change it to h before hitting return the command runs as expected. I could not find anything in the terminal preferences to prevent this capitalization from taking place. Any ideas?

    Someone on the Apple support forum nailed this one less then 30 seconds after I posted. The problem was that I had Text Expander set to capitalize new sentences. Disabling the option solved the problem.
