    Now that carriage returns are no longer NO-OPS but real WHITESPACE,
    perhaps print should be told about this. I printed a bignum to
    a file, and PRINT inserted newlines,...
You were not using the default environment and/or you were doing this from
a breakpoint. The autoterpri 'feature' is controlled by the variable TERPRI.
Setting it to T makes it not autoterpri (don't ask me why not the other way
around ...). There's a Lisp bug that makes TERPRI get rebound to NIL in
breakpoints instead of T (which it defaultly is at toplevel). This is and has
been for a while fixed in XLisp, so hang in there or start using XLisp in
the interim ... -kmp
