I just tried this. It's interesting. When I specified *PRV or *SAME, the
command showed up in the history, but F9 did not retrieve it. When I
specified *EXT, the command showed up in the history but could not be
retrieved until I called QCMD, which executed it. It appears that the
command has to have been executed to be retrieved, although this is not the
behavior exhibited when you prompt a command and press F3/F12. These
commands, although never "run", can be retrieved.
