22.3. Printing Characters [sec_22-1-3-2]

Characters are printed as specified in [ANSI CL standard] using #\, with one exception: when printer escaping is in effect, the space character is printed as #\Space when the variable CUSTOM:*PRINT-SPACE-CHAR-ANSI* is NIL. When CUSTOM:*PRINT-SPACE-CHAR-ANSI* is non-NIL, it is printed as #\ ; this is how [ANSI CL standard] specifies it.
