The 'print' function prints the 'expr' to the specified 'destination'. The 'expr' is printed followed by a 'newline' character. If 'expr' is a string, it will be printed with quotes around the string. The 'expr' is returned as the result. The 'destination' may be a file pointer or a stream. If there is no 'destination', *standard-output* is the default.
(print 'a) ; prints A with #\Newline (print '(a b)) ; prints (A B) with #\Newline (print 99) ; prints 99 with #\Newline (print "hi") ; prints "hi" with #\Newline (setq f (open "f" :direction :output)) ; create file (print "hi" f) ; returns "hi" (print 727 f) ; returns 727 (print "ho" f) ; returns "ho" (close f) ; file contains "hi"#\Newline ; 727#\Newline ; "ho"#\Newline
Common Lisp: Common Lisp specifies that 'pprint' with a 'destination' of NIL will go to *standard-output*. XLISP does not send the output to *standard-output* with a 'destination' of NIL. Common Lisp also specifies that a 'destination' of T will be sent to *terminal-io*, which is not defined in XLISP by default. XLISP does not allow T as a valid argument for 'destination'.
