LeftSkeleton

\[LeftSkeleton]
  • Uninterpretable element.



  • n is used on output to indicate n omitted pieces in an expression obtained from Short or Shallow.
  • \[LeftSkeleton] indicates the presence of missing information, and so by default generates an error if you try to interpret it.
  • Not the same as \[LeftGuillemet].
  • See The Mathematica Book:


    Section 3.10.5.
  • See also: \[RightSkeleton], \[SkeletonIndicator], \[Ellipsis], \[ErrorIndicator].
