I am re-visiting the general purpose value dump in ex.err. What I would really like to see is something like:

symtab[1..15] = {1,0,3,4,0,0,0,8,0,0,0,12,0,0,15} 
symtab[16][1] = "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Phix\\builtins\\" 
symtab[16][2] = "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Phix\\" 
symtab[16][3] = "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Phix\\demo\\misc\\eubins-mingw32\\" 
symtab[17][1..2] = {{3, "someotherfile.exw"}, {3, "somefile.e"}} 
symtab[17][3..5] = {{1, "prtnid2.e"}, {1, "psprint.e"}, {1, "pprntf.e"}} 
symtab[18..20] = {26,2,{-1073741819,0,32463637,32017528,253,32049420,0,0}} 
symtab[21][1..11] = {-1,8,1,2304,0,253, "P", 0,0,0,32452560} 
symtab[21][12][1..11] = {0,-77,28,35'#',38'&',-1,41')',46'.',-1,49'1',52'4'} 
symtab[21][12][12..22] = {55'7',-1,58':',-1,124'|',155,163,210,256,259,280} 
symtab[21][12][23..35] = {291,307,345,352,396,434,-1,436,478,483,-2,501,550} 
symtab[21][12][36..48] = {-1,561,-3,577,625,662,700,712,727,738,-1,744,782} 
symtab[21][12][49..61] = {790,808,852,890,905,950,-2,957,962,970,972,983,-2} 
symtab[21][12][62..65] = {991,1033,1038,1048} 
symtab[21][13..14] = {1,0} 
symtab[22] = 0 
simple = 1 
text = "text" 
shortsq = {-1,0-,1} 
I had a couple of goes but it is clearly a difficult thing to wrap my head around, and right now what I'm really doing is writing a statement of desired results to go and sleep on. Obviously I don't really care about details such as '#', the big problem is that what happens earlier on is dependent on what we find later. I think the above covers most of what I want, apart perhaps from splitting uber-long strings, which might get messy mid-long-sub-sequence.

Should you fancy a go, your not necessarily accurate starter for 10, for which you provide a clever_dump() routine, is:

constant symtab = {1,0,3,4,0,0,0,8,0,0,0,12,0,0,15, 
                   {"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Phix\\builtins\\", 
                    "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Phix\\", 
                    "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Phix\\demo\\misc\\eubins-mingw32\\"}, 
                   {{3, "someotherfile.exw"}, {3, "somefile.e"}, 
                    {1, "prtnid2.e"}, {1, "psprint.e"}, {1, "pprntf.e"}}, 
                   {-1,8,1,2304,0,253, "P", 0,0,0,32452560, 

Oh, someone recently mentioned a /std string type which will hopefully be fine for this.

Of course I would be perfectly happy to have a simple flag which creates the older index-free style ex.err, please let me know if you think that's worthwhile doing.

And, I have to ask, does anyone else think this is a good idea, if we can do it?
