You don't mean just using the cursor up and down arrows to step through
what was last command line typed, one command line at a time?

e.g. If the last three command lines I'd typed had been "cd /tmp" then
"ls" then "touch something", cursoring up would show those command lines
again, one at a time, at the current prompt, and I could press enter to
re-issue that command (or edit it, first),

-- 
[tim bigblack ~]$ uname -ipr
2.6.22.1-41.fc7 i686 i386

Using FC 4, 5, 6 & 7, plus CentOS 5.  Today, it's FC7.
