Re: view last command

hi,

check the history file if it's defined or activate auditing/accounting.

histfile are defined mostly sh_history,

$home/.profile

export PS1=`hostname`:'$PWD>'
export HISTFILE=./.sh_history
export HISTSIZE=2048

Re: view last command

if history is enabled, press escape k

to search escape / and to move cursor use vi commands. all vi keys will work with ksh.
