What I do personally is work in a different directory
for each different use of ZigZag, but I give the dataset
a particular name so that these datasets can later be
moved or copied into the same directory without needing
to be renamed.
Then from time to time I do a control-c to get out of ZZ,
then copy the working data into another file indicating
the time it was saved, for instance
cp zdataCLASS zdataCLASS.981007am11
That way, the next time I do it I can just hit up-arrow
and that instruction will appear, then I change the time.
But people can do this however they want.

"All you have to do to work on ZigZag is fully unscrew your head
and put it down in a safe place where it can be sure to watch you."
