If you need exactly the same arguments for two or more commands in
sequence, you can execute LAST to return copies of the arguments to
the stack for the next command. If the commands don't require ex-

easier to use local variables.
You can disable LAST (that is, the saving of arguments) by pressing
in the MODE menu. The box disappears from the menu label,
indicating that arguments won't be saved. This practice is not gener-
ally recommended, since the calculator uses the saved arguments for
recovery when an error occurs. However, if a command or program
fails because of insufficient memory, you can attempt execution with
LAST disabled. When you're done, be sure to enable LAST again by
a second time.
