For some reason I get a bash history file in each and every folder where I issue any command. The file is called history rather than the normal .bash_history.
My .bash_profile has the following that affects history.
45 shopt -s histappend 46 PROMPT_COMMAND="$PROMPT_COMMAND history -a"
I'm using GNU bash, version 4.3.30(1)-release installed on Mac via Homebrew.
 I just noticed that I only get the file when running in screen
