Hmmm... do you mean to have a buffer limit? That is, a certain number of lines in a field where the oldest lines get deleted first? Also, do you mean a shell app or something for livecode commands and functions? If the latter, doesn't the message box do something similar? GLX2 has a clairvoyance feature, and using the up and down keys in the single line message box will cycle through what has been entered in the past.
