I at times use a command of the form ?pattern; to see what symbols
have been defined, especially by a << operation to read in data.
Usually this works well, but sometimes for no apparent special reason
this command first lists the symbol names and then their values.
Since I am looking for symbols whose values are very large data sets,
this locks up the notebook process as it tries to format the data set.
I have three questions. First, is there a better way to generate a
list of all symbols that match a pattern? Second, why does ?
sometimes print the symbol values and other times not print them?
Third, is there any way on MS Windows other than CTRL+ALT+DEL to
convince a Mathematica front end process that you really don't want to
see the 500 pages of numbers it is patiently formatting for you?
