Dear SAC users and devs,

There is a useful feature in softwares like bash, which can save
command history to a disk file and load it the next time they run. In
this way, people can use hotkeys like Up Arrow, Down Arrow, Alt+P,
Alt+N, etc. to access the commands they've used not only in the
current session but also in the previous sessions. I hope that SAC can
have the same feature so as to make our lives a bit easier.

The feature should not be difficult to implement, and if people
(hopefully both users and devs) think it is desirable, I'll start to
do it. :-)

Best regards,

  • Kuang He,

    This feature (saving the command history) will be available in the
    next version.

    Cheers
    Brian
