FilledSmallSquare The default setting is MatchLocalNames -> True.

FilledSmallSquare With the default setting, Trace[expr, x = rhs] will show assignments to local variables whose names are of the form x$nnn.

FilledSmallSquare Trace[expr, x = rhs, MatchLocalNames->False] shows assignments only for the global symbol x.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 2.6.11.
