As far as I remember (SSTATUS TERPRI foo) is supposed to be the same 
as (SETQ TERPRI (NOT foo)).  (Unfortunately, there is no clear note to 
this effect in .INFO.;LISP ARCHIV .)  I was considering finally phasing 
out the former from MACSYMA files in favor of the latter as JONL long 
ago recommended.  However, it would be reasonable and reassuring 
(if my assumption above is true) if doing a (SSTATUS TERPRI foo) 
had some effect on the value of TERPRI, which it doesn't.  (Expecting 
resetting TERPRI to have some effect on (STATUS TERPRI) I would think 
is not to be expected.)  Can someone clarify just what the story here is?
