prints as a version of expr suitable for input to Mathematica.

Details and OptionsDetails and Options

  • InputForm acts as a "wrapper", which affects display, but not evaluation. »
  • Put () produces InputForm by default.
  • Short[InputForm[expr]] can be used, but may generate skeleton objects which cannot be given as Mathematica input.
  • The option NumberMarks can be used to specify whether marks should be used to indicate type, precision, or accuracy of approximate numbers. »
