Abstract

An undo facility is an essential component of most interactive applications. In current operating system shells, whether textual or graphical, such facilities are typically very poor. Algorithms are presented for adding a recovery mechanism to a shell which allows previous commands to be selectively undone and redone, and previous versions of files to be recovered.
