First hit the [Esc] key, then the [-] key to retrieve the previous command. You can hit the [-] key again and again to retrieve the previous commands.

To edit the retrieved command your commandline acts like in the vi-editor.

Using the ESC key and - will work only if you set -o vi (in ksh).
The man page on history will give more information for csh and I don't believe you can do this in sh at all.

DOSKEY in UNIX.

Hi

Change shell to bash or tcsh.
That should do it.

what i want is to
1) capture this history of commands into a file,
2) something like pressing esc and - to screen through the list of commands.
3) do the above in csh, sh.

and i got the below

fc -l does gives the history of commands entered. but this set -o vi, doesnt work in csh, i got this set:syntax error from the system. according to the earlier posts, i did a man history, and it was only two pages with the description of what it does
