Subject: Re: Readable hash tables From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 2000/06/14 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Ivar Rummelhoff <email@example.com> | I'm so sorry. | | (let ((dispatch | (let ((tab (copy-pprint-dispatch nil))) | (set-pprint-dispatch 'hash-table #'hash-print 0 tab) | tab))) | (defun mi-write (obj &rest args) | (let ((*print-pprint-dispatch* dispatch)) | (setf (getf args :pretty) t) | (apply #'write obj args)))) | | should replace the erroneous function by the same name in my previous | posting. Although not strictly erroneous, you don't really know whether the argument list is modifiable and safe to modify. I highly recommend (apply #'write obj :pretty t args) as only the first occurrence of a keyword argument is used and any redundancy is just ignored. | Alas, this the new version insists on printing pretty... Well, you _could_ empty the pprint-dispatch if *print-pretty* is nil upon entry to the function. An empty *pprint-dispatch* is returned from excl::make-pprint-dispatch without arguments in Allegro CL. #:Erik -- If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
