We present a simple, accurate and reliable approach to the estimation of the local discretization error for general linear methods for ordinary differential equations. In this approach the input vector for the next step from xn to xn+1 = xn + h is rescaled and modified accordingly to compensate for the change of stepsize from h̄ to h = r/h̄.
