Re: How to create a new Form


Thanks for the answers, but it's not what I want... :(

I know I can use BaseForm to do this (as I told), and I know how to use
format to format expression on any Form that is built-in to Mathematica
(like: CForm, FortranForm, InputForm, StandardForm, etc.). This is what
documentation explain.

What I want to know, is how to create my own "output form". This
BinaryForm is just a simple example, in fact what I want to do is more
complicated (and I tried to simplify the question).

yehuda: I looked at Combinatorica, but found just a formatting rule for
graphs, and not and example of how to create a new output form.

Maybe someone from Wolfram staff could help me?

Thanks,
-- Nilton
