Thanks! I have emacs 21.3.1. I installed the package and it works!

There is just one bug, and I thought I'd share it here, maybe others
experience the same: If I do M-x compile and go arrow-up to get the
most recent command it says "no preceding item", then I go "arrow-
down" and "arrow-up" again, and there it is, the most recent compile
command, from my last emacs run. Or, once I have several in the list
it won't show the most recent one on "arrow-up", but the next-to-last
one, then after pressing "arrow-down" it shows the most recent one.

Thanks!
Markus
