Syntax: #CAP [number] [name]
Related: Editor window

Captures the last number lines of text, and copies them into another window. If number is missing, the last line is copied. If number is -1, all lines are copies. If ‘name’ is specified, the lines are sent to the named window (the window is created if it doesn’t exist). If ‘name’ is omitted, the lines are sent to the command editor window.
