    I'm trying to make the 'history' command smarter for me by adding the
    capability to include search strings (i.e. a history of every time I
    used the command 'load'). It works beautifully, except that I've
    noticed that my numerical results are off by 1 or 2 compared to what
    is given by the history command. For example, history gives me:

    1 history()
    2 load( "/blah/" )
    3 Blah()
    4 history()

    Whereas my script gives me:

    1 ddUpdateLibList()
    2 history()
    3 load( "/blah/" )
    4 Blah()
    5 history()

    How is the history() command calculating its numbers? I was looking
    at the log file and searching for \a and \i and counting them up.
    History ignored the start-up command ddUpdateLibList. How does it
    know to do this? Is it reading a different log file somewhere? If it
    is, where is it?

    It doesn't read the log file. Each time a function is called, it is stored in a
    data structure which is used by the history() function.
