FullForm

FilledSmallSquare FullForm[expr] prints as the full form of expr, with no special syntax.

FilledSmallSquare Example: FullForm[a + b^2] LongRightArrow.

FilledSmallSquare FullForm acts as a "wrapper", which affects printing, but not evaluation.

FilledSmallSquare FullForm always effectively uses "PrintableASCII" as the setting for $CharacterEncoding.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 2.1.1, Section 2.1.1, Section 2.1.4, Section 2.3.1, Section 2.3.13 and Section 2.9.1.
