Description

Of all built-in types of formatting InputForm is most easily read after pasting in an email message. However, the InputForm of a real number often has sixteen digits and one would rather show only the first six digits. A package is provided that defines a function called PlainForm which formats expressions the same as InputForm except with only the first six digits of approximate numbers displayed. PlainForm also differs from InputForm in that it uses StandardForm for all types of graphics, Sound, CompiledFunction, InterpolationFunction, and SeriesData.
