Dear Etan,

thank you very much for your replay, and sorry my poor english.

Yes, I am thinking in recall previous messages I have sent. When I was a
X-Chat user, this functionality was available (by hiting up-arrow), and
I miss it. The question is: is possible (by mean of some plugin) to recall
or to edit the previous message sent?
