Hi Derrell,

Take a look at the *PRINT-CIRCLE* special: http://www.lispworks.com/documentation/HyperSpec/Body/v_pr_cir.htm

"If true, the printer will endeavor to detect cycles and sharing in  
the structure to be printed, and to use #n= and#n# syntax to indicate  
the circularities or shared components."
