for those that wonder about v() does (in the example deleted) the manual 
have the following to say:

     Uses the return value of the command N in the current command, if N 
is positive. If it is negative, the return value of the Nth previous 
command is used (i.e., v(-1) uses the value of the previous command).

this was not an answer the question asked, just information for those 
interested in the problem.

Those were the days...
    EPO guidelines 1978: "If the contribution to the known art resides
    solely in a computer program then the subject matter is not
    patentable in whatever manner it may be presented in the claims."
