Thank you very much!  That is by far the shortest solution I have so far.
I wonder whether it is possible to make it still shorter by a shell
script.  Unfortunately a shell script called "l",

echo $(!!)

does not work, because the !! is not substituted.  Would you maybe know
how I can force history substitution here?
