Default How to unsmooth a smoothed object

In the Mech tutorial, the prof smooths and unsmooths polygons with a shortcut on his polygon tab of his shelf. However, my polygon options only include a smooth option and not its inverse. How (short of undo) can I reverse a smooth in Maya 6.0. For that matter, can one somehow remove any operation on an object somehow by removing it from the inputs stack?

there is a way to unsmooth in the poly options (forgot what its called), but it really sucks, so dont use it... i have seen scripts people have written that unsmooth, but maya doesnt have one, you would have to get a mel script probably..

edit: He's probably doing ctrl-z, which is undo..

You can goto history. Find the smoothing command and change subdivisions from 1(or whatever you have set) to 0 (zero) and it will unsmooth.
