0.4.2 Accessing Earlier Results

The "%" macro represents the result of the previous computation.
The "%%" macro is available which takes a single integer argument.
If the argument is positive then it refers to the step number of
the calculation where the numbering begins from one and can be
seen at the end of each prompt (the number in parentheses). If
the argument is negative then it refers to previous results counting
backwards from the last result. That is, "%%(-1)" is the same as
"%". The value of "%%(0)" is not defined and will generate an error
if requested.

Why do you say this is dangerous? This is only a way to refer
to the result of a previous computation.
