On the MATLAB commandline, I can recall the previous command with the UP arrow. However, if I already have typed something and then hit UP arrow, only commands beginning with what I already typed will show up. This is mostly useful, and very annoying at the same time. Often what I want is this:
>> longVariable longVariable = 1 2 3 4
and immediately afterwards I want to type something like
bash I can just do by typing ALT+. (beautiful).
I can't get that behavior in MATLAB though... unless you can help me out?
PS: I am aware that I could just hit UP arrow, POS1, "size(" etc - it's what I am doing now, but it is very counter intuitive to me.
PPS: Today I discovered that my desired behavior is correctly implemented in
octave - which is very nice for octave, but I'd really love to have this in Matlab...
