ANSI Common Lisp 22 Printer 22.4 Dictionary of Printer
- Value Type:
a pprint dispatch table.
- Initial Value:
implementation-dependent, but the initial entries all use a
special class of priorities that have the property that they are less
than every priority that can be specified using set-pprint-dispatch,
so that the initial contents of any entry can be overridden.
The pprint dispatch table which currently controls the pretty printer.

Section 220.127.116.11 Pretty Print Dispatch Tables
The intent is that the initial value of this variable should
cause `traditional' pretty printing of code.
In general, however, you can put a value in *print-pprint-dispatch*
that makes pretty-printed output look exactly like non-pretty-printed output.
Setting *print-pretty* to true
just causes the functions contained in the current pprint dispatch table
to have priority over normal print-object methods;
it has no magic way of enforcing that those functions actually produce pretty
output. For details, see Section 18.104.22.168 Pretty Print Dispatch Tables.
