I am running Mathematica 2.0 on a SparcStation. Since there is no
notebook interface, I would like to be able to use EditIn. However,
EditIn seems to work only once. Here's what I mean.
(* In the editor I change the "x=3" to "x=4". *)
In the edit buffer I find not the wanted "x=4", available for further
editing, but "EditIn". Now I admit that "EditIn" is what I typed
to the prompt, but that's not what I want to be able to edit here. Is
there some way around this? Can I recover the "x=4" for re-editing?
Of course, this is much more of a problem with more complicated
multi-line input, or when doing class demonstrations with many similar
Yes, I realize I can save the original "x=4" when in the editor the
first time, and yes, I know I can use cut-and-paste and ignore EditIn
altogether, but that doesn't explain the brain-damaged behavior here.
If it would just work right it would be a lot more useful.
