For example if you ever need to find that command you once executed, or just because.
It will only take a few seconds to update your PROMPT_COMMAND so that it logs every command to a file.
And the next time you’re trying to remember the command line options you used with find that one time (but can’t find in your current session’s history), you’ll be able to look it up in the log files.
