I agree with most of what you say:
1. the current representation of numpy array with print() is of course
already there and it is not my goal to replace it. but rather add something
like Sympy's pprint function, an alternative representation.
2. the reason I'm using console is first because there are people who
use it and secondly because I have no idea how to do what you are doing :))
there is room for both I think
I don’t think putting everything in boxes is helping. it is confusing. I

wow this is awesome:

I wonder if you could make this the default view without the need of those
other inputs or the lamda function? this is almost 80% of what I had in mind

imaging the Pandas .head() and .tail functions which accept positive
integer inputs to show specific number of rows. now our print function
could have two inputs one string which should be L for left, R for right,
U for up and D for down. respectively UL, UR, DL and DR for corners.
another input is a tuple of integers which in the case of U,D,L,R is only
one integer showing the number of rows or columns. and in the case of UL,
UR, DL, DR two integers showing the number of rows and columns in that
specific corner to be shown.
What could be added:
1. adding slide bars for big datasets
2. compressing the result according to the terminals dimensions (as
Pandas does)
3. editing the variables like Spyders variable explorer
4. adding dimensions or rows/columns within a dimension or elements in
rows/columns
Again thanks a lot for your help. I appreciate your kind support.
Best,
Foad
