Subject: Re: Half of *PRINT-ESCAPE* From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 14 Jan 2003 20:00:32 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Simon Katz | I want to get half the effect of binding *PRINT-ESCAPE* to False. | When *PRINT-ESCAPE* is False, neither escape characters nor package | prefixes are output when an expression is printed. But is there a | way to have package prefixes printed (when necessary) and escape | characters not printed? Which escape characters do you not want to see printed? Going on a hunch here that you have mixed-case symbol names, perhaps your problem is solved by tweaking the `readtable-case´, instead? (setf *readtable* (copy-readtable)) (setf (readtable-case *readtable*) :preserve) -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder. Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
