[GemStone-Smalltalk] #printString [was Re: first: / last:]

In VW an Array that is too big gets truncated with ' ...etc...) ', which tends to cause problems in generated scripts. So we use our own 'makeString' (as in a 'make' file) which is coded to work on GS and VW.

Hi Bob,

I just had this example printed in my VA transcript:
(#CompilationError #CompileError [] in

Putting a number sign in front is not going to make it readable. In fact,
even though I am not a fan of the GS way of printing an array, the commas
would improve readability of this example.
