7 The Listener

7.5 The History menu

The forms and commands typed at previous prompts are stored in what is called the history list of the listener. It is so named because it records all the forms and commands you have typed into the listener. This is a similar concept to that of the UNIX command line history. Each form or command in the history is known as an event.

You can obtain a list of up to the last ten events in the history by displaying the History > Items submenu. To re-evaluate any event, choose it from this submenu.

For more information about history lists in the environment, see Section 3.5 on page 39.
