? 

i just want to look at my data like you, and generally i don't care too much 
about which part, structure typically repeats itself

so, when i am preparing the data ready for analysis, i perform some operation 
on the data and then hit "l" to check whether i am doing things right (it 
happens that i am not right the first time), and this repeatedly until i 
reached my goal. then i put the *correct* steps in a do-file

typing "l, clean nocompress" is not really handy when i am in this iterative 
process...

so this is why i want the old list back, without sep(5). if i use list in an 
ado i don't mind typing and formatting. but in interactive mode i like to 
type little and get things done quickly

sorry if i bore you guys, but i find the new list defaults very annoying

at the moment i am using a wrapper "ll" but there is this thing about old 
habits and dying...

Ed.
