I am converting an old code written 8 yrs ago in Mathematica 2.2 to
4.2, and would like to keep the same plain text tabular output.
To see what I mean, consider the 2.2 fragment
PrintNodeCoordinates[xyzcoor_]:= Module[
{numnod=Length[xyzcoor],t,n,c},
t=Table[" ",{numnod+1},{4}];
For [n=1,n<=numnod,n++,c=xyzcoor[[n]];
If [Length[c]<=2, AppendTo[c,0]];
If [Length[c]==1, AppendTo[c,0]];
t[[n+1,1]]=ToString[n];
t[[n+1,2]]=PaddedForm[c[[1]]];
t[[n+1,3]]=PaddedForm[c[[2]]];
t[[n+1,4]]=PaddedForm[c[[3]]];
];
t[[1]] = {"node","x","y","z"};
Print[TableForm[t,TableAlignments->{Right},
TableDirections->{Column,Row},TableSpacing->{0,1}]];
];
PrintNodeCoordinates[
{{2,3,2000},{5,a+b,168.09},{x_dir,y_dir,z_dir}}];
The output from 2.2 is
node x y z
1 2 3 2000
2 5 a + b 168.09
3 x_dir y_dir z_dir
What you see is exactly what you get if you move the output cell
to another program like TeX, e.g. for verbatim display.
Running this under 4.2 gives a messy output. Saving the output
cell with Save Selection As -> Plain Text I see
\!\(\*
TagBox[GridBox[{
{"\<\"node\"\>", "\<\"x\"\>", "\<\"y\"\>", "\<\"z\"\>"},
{"\<\"1\"\>",
TagBox[
InterpretationBox["\<\" 2\"\>",
2,
Editable->False],
PaddedForm],
<30+ more lines snipped, you get the idea>
How can I get exact plain text output? I looked for something
like a TextForm or PlainTextForm filter, so I could say
Print[PlainTextForm[TableForm[t,TableAlignments->{Right},
TableDirections->{Column,Row},TableSpacing->{0,1}]]];
but found nothing in the 4.2 help file. Is there a way?
