Description (last modified by rme)

From Shannon 8/19/10: meta-p retrieves the last thing you typed in the Listener. There needs to be a shift modifier on this to go forward in case you go too far back. Also, it replaces whatever is currently in the listener, so you can't type e.g.

(+ 3 4 5)
(+ 6 meta-p)

because when you type meta-p above, it replaces the entire line with (+ 3 4 5). MCL did this right (with meta-g) such that it did not replace what was already on the line.

You can already go backwards and forwards with M-p and M-n.

I'll add some way to put previous input into what's already on the current line.

(In [14208]) Change Hemlock command "Previous Interactive Input" so that it inserts previous input at point, leaving the current input line intact.
