Last Line Recall

Last Line Recall was marketed originally by K. Osborne (who later went on to trade as Breakthrough Software.

It was a short machine code routine which allowed you to recall the last line which was entered at the input cursor, so that you could edit it and re-submit the line.

This was the fore-runner of the effect achieved with <ALT><ENTER> in both SuperToolkit and the Hotkey system (included as part of the Pointer Environment), whereas the SuperToolkit realized it with a polling task and the Hotkey system with a job.

As well as being available on microdrive cartridge, you could also purchase this for £4.95 as a Hex Dump Listing to type in.
