MULTIPLE command's intersting ability

Have you ever needed a command to repeat, and repeat, and repeat, as you do something very repetitive over and over again? MULTIPLE command is what you need.

It has a very simple function: it repeats whatever command you type right after it. For example, you need to use MOVE or FILLET or CHAMFER commands etc. on many objects individually. At the command line, type MULTIPLE then the command you want to repeat, then use as normal. Every thime you finish the command, it restarts. To cancel, simply tap the ESC key on your keyboard.

To things to note about this command: it does not repeat any parameters within the command, it just repeast the command as if you just started it. It also does not work on commands that present you with a dialog box. ◦
