The point of TeX is beautiful typesetting.

I don’t want to create another bug report for why

  (+ 2 2) 

gives the ``complication’’ by default

  4 (#o4, #x4, ?\C-d)

and not the simple


Emacs 26.1-rc1 (NS Port) and Emacs 25.3 (Mac Port) both produce

  4 (#o4, #x4, ?\C-d)

In the below, it is not possible to set 
`eval-expression-print-maximum-character’ to `nil’ to 
achieve the simple `4’ result. 
`M-x customize’ wants a number for 26.1-rc1 and the default is 127. 

  #+NAME: simple.el.gz
  #+BEGIN_SRC elisp n=1535
    If the resulting value is an integer, and CHAR-PRINT-LIMIT is
    non-nil (interactively, unless given a positive prefix argument)
    it will be printed in several additional formats (octal,
    hexadecimal, and character).  The character format is only used
    if the value is below CHAR-PRINT-LIMIT (interactively, if the
    prefix argument is -1 or the value is below


  #+NAME: eval-expression-print-maximum-character
    eval-expression-print-maximum-character is a variable defined in 
    Its value is 127

    The largest integer that will be displayed as a character.
    This affects printing by ‘eval-expression’ (via

    You can customize this variable.

    This variable was introduced, or its default value was changed, in
    version 26.1 of Emacs.


The backtrace diff I submitted in another bug needs undoing 
because I believe the simple `4' result is better to keep in the earlier lisp 

Details about ``complications’’ is bulk the lisp intro can separate into a 
different book.
