Dear MathGroup Members,
Tracing functions from Packages generates very long
and confusing output, since long context names are
printed. To give a short example, consider the following
command sequence:




generates very long output. A simple strategy to strip
it would be to use Trace[command, form] which only reports
expressions matching form.
But this does not alleviate the problem that package
variable names are very long, since all package symbols
have a long context. For example
the private package variables 'm' and 'found' are printed as

DiscreteMath`Tree`Private`m      and

This makes Trace output almost unreadable.

Can anyone suggest a simple idea how to remove the long
context names in Trace output?

I defined a function which cuts the context from
symbols, but this seems awkward an application of
the function to the output is not trivial.

Best regards,
	Johannes Ludsteck
