Output the printed representation of OBJECT, any Lisp object.
Quoting characters are printed when needed to make output that `read'
can handle, whenever this is possible. For complex objects, the behavior
is controlled by `print-level' and `print-length', which see.
OBJECT is any of the Lisp data types: a number, a string, a symbol,
a list, a buffer, a window, a frame, etc.
A printed representation of an object is text which describes that object.
Optional argument PRINTCHARFUN is the output stream, which can be one
- a buffer, in which case output is inserted into that buffer at point;
- a marker, in which case output is inserted at marker's position;
- a function, in which case that function is called once for each
character of OBJECT's printed representation;
- a symbol, in which case that symbol's function definition is called; or
- t, in which case the output is displayed in the echo area.
If PRINTCHARFUN is omitted, the value of `standard-output' (which see) is used instead. (fn OBJECT &optional PRINTCHARFUN)
