The number of components of an object that are printed in trace output.
*trace-print-length* controls the number of components of an object which are printed during output from tracing. If its value is a positive integer then the first
*trace-print-length* components are printed.
*print-length* is bound to the value of
*trace-print-length* while printing tracing information. If
nil then all the components of the object are printed.
USER 5 > (trace append)
USER 6 > (setq *trace-print-length* 3)
USER 7 > (dotimes (i 10) (setq li (if (zerop i)
(cons i li))))
USER 8 > (append li '(a b))
0 APPEND > ((9 8 7 ...) (A B))
0 APPEND < ((9 8 7 ...))
(9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 A B)
*trace-print-length* is an extension to Common Lisp.
