# Description

The command moves the active input buffer pointer back to the previous parameter. It takes the general form:

The input buffer pointer is moved backwards to the preceding field mark or to the beginning of the input buffer. If the pointer is on the first character of a parameter (or a field marker), the pointer will be moved back to the field mark of the previous parameter.
