terpri &optional output-stream => nil
fresh-line &optional output-stream => generalized-boolean
Arguments and Values:
output-stream -- an output stream designator. The default is standard output.
generalized-boolean---a generalized boolean.
terpri outputs a newline to output-stream.
fresh-line is similar to terpri but outputs a newline only if the output-stream is not already at the start of a line. If for some reason this cannot be determined, then a newline is output anyway. fresh-line returns true if it outputs a newline; otherwise it returns false.
(with-output-to-string (s) (write-string "some text" s) (terpri s) (terpri s) (write-string "more text" s)) => "some text more text" (with-output-to-string (s) (write-string "some text" s) (fresh-line s) (fresh-line s) (write-string "more text" s)) => "some text more text"
The output-stream is modified.
