*print-length*

When returned values are printed to a Lisp listener, the values of cl:*print-length* and cl:*print-level* are bound to the values of this variable and tpl:*print-level*.

The value of this variable may be, in addition to the values usually allowed for a print control variable, the symbol :follow. That value means use the current value of cl:*print-length*. See Allegro CL print variables can follow the CL print variable value in implementation.htm.

This variable is not available in Lisp images built with a minimal top level, that is built with the include-tpl argument to build-lisp-image specified nil. See Minimal top levels in building-images.htm for information on minimal top levels.

Warning: because this variable does not exist in a minimal top level image, returned values are printed with the specification of cl:*print-length*. If that value is nil, much more may be printed than actually desired.

See top-level.htm for more information on the top level.
