Dear all,

as you may have noticed, I discovered yet another bug (at least I think it's a
bug) in the output routines:

width((x**2)::OUTFORM) returns 5 instead of 2, and width((1/2)::OUTFORM)
returns (I think) also 5 instead of 1.

So I tried to debug the relevant code, which start at putWidth in

However, although I can say, for example

(1) -> putWidth((x**2)::OUTFORM)$Lisp

   (1)  ((** . 5) x 2)
                                                            Type: SExpression

I don't know how to call putWidth from within boot, i.e., after saying )fin.

I.e., how can I access, say, an Axiom variable from boot? I'd like to say
p := (x**2)::OUTFORM


or so.
