22.1.3.3.2.1 Examples of Effect of Readtable Case on the Lisp Printer

 (defun test-readtable-case-printing ()
   (let ((*readtable* (copy-readtable nil))
         (*print-case* *print-case*))
     (format t "READTABLE-CASE *PRINT-CASE*  Symbol-name  Output~
              ~%----------------------------------------------- - ~
              ~%")
     (dolist (readtable-case '(:upcase :downcase :preserve :invert))
       (setf (readtable-case *readtable*) readtable-case)
       (dolist (print-case '(:upcase :downcase :capitalize))
         (dolist (symbol '(|ZEBRA| |Zebra| |zebra|))
           (setq *print-case* print-case)
           (format t "~&:~A~15T:~A~29T~A~42T~A"
                   (string-upcase readtable-case)
                   (string-upcase print-case)
                   (symbol-name symbol)
                   (prin1-to-string symbol)))))))
The output from (test-readtable-case-printing) should be as follows:

    READTABLE-CASE *PRINT-CASE*  Symbol-name  Output
