This is a special form: the argument must be a variable identifier. It returns a map where the keys are integers and the values are the date in physical times of the successive assignements to the variable. Integer 0 corresponds to the current value, 1 to the previous value, etc. Variable's history has a bounded length that can be specified using a @localor a@global declaration.

See also @tab_history, @map_history and @map_history_rdate.
