Is there any good way, preferably in FORMAT to
clip output longer than a specified length?
I am using FORMAT to create a string from
a list, but I only want the first 10 or 20 characters.
The effect I need is equivalent to:
(subseq (format nil "~a" XXX) 0 20))
but I would rather not do all the consing that
In general, I would like to be able to specify
the maximum field width of most of the format
