I've tried it -- it seems to do nothing:



224 ==/dkcjunk==> dirs
/dkcjunk /opt6/myexternals/home/dkc/4msnew 
/big5/david3/from_netcom-dir2/sources-stuff/lynx2-8-5/src 
225 ==/dkcjunk==> pushd /home/dkc; cd .
/home/dkc /dkcjunk /opt6/myexternals/home/dkc/4msnew 
/big5/david3/from_netcom-dir2/sources-stuff/lynx2-8-5/src 
226 ==/home/dkc==> egrepin -c tck *.mss | egrep -v '\.mss:0$'
sundgrep.mss:1
sundgrep_orig.mss:1
227 ==/home/dkc==> popd; cd .
/dkcjunk /opt6/myexternals/home/dkc/4msnew 
/big5/david3/from_netcom-dir2/sources-stuff/lynx2-8-5/src 
228 ==/dkcjunk==> alias xalias 'printf "At startup, su(ck)-in one .smd 
"subcommand"-file:\n  (NOTE: below, "su" is ok-abbrev for suck-in ("source") 
cmd "subcommands t.smd",\n      meaning "read in the sub-commands located in

tools.smd\n    (should be local indir-symlinks *thru* 
/home/dkc/4msnew/{cuffs,tools}.smd)"'

228 ==/dkcjunk==> xalias

q


See just above, my "g<return>", several of them.

Does nothing, I think.

Any other suggestions on recovering a seemingly-"destroyed"
*shell*-buffer that's gotten (apparantely irretrievably) sucked 
into the ^G^G^G,,, snakepit.

thanks,

David
