Subject: Re: string printing within specified margins From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 2000/08/03 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * John M. Adams | Given a long string, | what is a natural way | to print it within | certain margins, like | this? | | With all the power of format and pretty-printing, it seems like | there ought to be a way, but I'm not getting it. (let ((*print-miser-width* 0) (*print-right-margin* 20)) (format t "~@<Given a long string, what is a natural way to print it within certain margins, like this?~@:>")) Given a long string, what is a natural way to print it within certain margins, like this? => nil I haven't found (in five minutes) a good way to make this work for an argument string instead of a constant string. #:Erik -- If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
