 +======Synopsis:​======
 +[[window]] scroll_backward
 +
 +======Description:​======
 +This operation moves the scrollback view backwards (towards older
 +output). The amount it moves is determined by [[set scrollback_ratio]]
 +which is a percentage of the window'​s size.
 +It is usual and customary when you scroll backward for the scrollback
 +view to become the current view, so you will always see an immediate
 +effect.
 +
 +When you reach the top of the scrollback buffer, further attempts to go
 +backward will result in a beep.
 +
 +When the scrollback view is active (after you use scroll_backward),​ new
 +output to your window is buffered (held) without bounds, so you will
 +never lose any output. ​ But it will use more memory.
 +
 +You may want to read the [[WINDOW]] help file discussion about views.
 +
 +======History:​======
 +This operation first appeared in EPIC4-1.1.11
