Also look at @macro and @save, which allow you to respectively re-execute and 
save chunks of code you've typed interactively.  You can select non-contiguous 
sets of lines in your input history to assemble on the fly code snippets for 
quick re-execution.  I use @macro a lot when doing interactive work to make 
single letter aliases for chunks of code I need to rerun many times.
