[My earlier mail asks for help in getting Mathematica to print numbers in FORTRAN-like "e" format when using FullForm.] Okay, sorry, reading The Book more closely offers a solution: NumberForm[ FullForm[ expr ], NumberFormat -> (SequenceForm[#1, "e", #3]&) ] does what I want (see p 352). Note that FortranForm[] does *not* work for my purposes because it "unFullForm's" a FullForm expression besides printing the numbers in Fortran form.
