$OutputSizeLimit

$OutputSizeLimit

specifies the maximum size in bytes of expressions that will automatically be output in their entirety in a Wolfram System notebook.

Details

  • For expressions larger than $OutputSizeLimit, portions of the expression are displayed, together with controls to allow more to be displayed.
  • $OutputSizeLimit is not affected by constructs such as Graphics and SparseArray, whose displayed forms do not grow with the amount of data they contain.
  • Larger portions of expressions elided as a result of $OutputSizeLimit can only be displayed while the corresponding Out[n] is accessible in a single kernel session.

This produces output that is somewhat lengthy:

Set $OutputSizeLimit to be rather small:

Now the same output as before is shown in a shortened form:

This resets the $OutputSizeLimit option to its global setting:
