Retracing Steps with the "L" Command. If you have been moving around to different nodes and wish to retrace your steps, the "L" command ("L" for "Last") will do that, one node at a time. If you have been following directions, an "L" command now will get you back to Help-Pr-M. Another L command would undo the U and get you back to Help-Pr-FOO. Another L would undo the M and get you back to Help-Pr-M. Note the difference between L and P: L moves to where YOU last were, whereas P always moves to the node which the Header says is the "Previous" node (from this node, to Help-M). The place to start looking for any topic, if you know nothing else, is the directory node of INFO, which is the one you saw the header and title of when you started INFO. This node has a menu which leads (directly, or indirectly through other menus), to all the nodes that exist. You can go there ar any time to start looking for a topic by typing "D" for Directory. >> Try typing three L's, pausing in between to see what each L does. You should end up at Help-Pr-M. The header will show you then that you can use "N" to come back to here, Help-Pr-L Then type a "D" to go to the directory and come back here with "L". Then move on with "N". You know enough to look around at the directory now, but please resist the temptation to do so until the end of the course (which is soon).
