NTH-ALIASES-TABLE

a table used to associate names for nth/update-nth printing
Major Section:  SWITCHES-PARAMETERS-AND-MODES-OH-MY

Example:
(table nth-aliases-table 'st0 'st)
This example associates the symbol st0 with the symbol st. As a result, when the theorem prover prints terms of the form (nth n st0) or (update-nth n val st0), where st is a stobj whose nth accessor function is f-n, then it will print n as *f-n*.

General Form:
(table nth-aliases-table 'alias-name 'name)
This event causes alias-name to be treated like name for purposes of the printing of terms that are calls of nth and update-nth. (Note however that name is not recursively looked up in this table.) Both must be symbols other than state. See term, in particular the discussion there of untranslated terms.

For a convenient way to add entries to this table, see add-nth-alias. To remove entries from the table with ease, see remove-nth-alias.
