3.1.2 Command Line History

You can use the up and down arrow keys on your keyboard to go through recently used commands that are stored in history. By default, command-history will store only the last ten commands. This can be changed (for example to 15) by using the following command:

 > (set! *cmd-history-length* 15)


Command-history is not available if the FLUENT application is started with -g options (see Section  1.1.5).


The user inputs supplied as the arguments of the TUI command or alias will not be saved in history. By way of illustration, consider the following entry in the TUI:

>  rc new_file.cas


In history, only rc (an alias for read-case) will be saved, since new_file.cas is a user input to the alias-function.

Commands recalled from history can be edited or corrected using the <Backspace> key and the left and right arrow keys.
