Help! I want to print an ENTIRE lisp expression.

Emacs 21.1

I have a list structure which I created by a macro-like thing in *scratch*.

However I try to look at it, Emacs says "Hoy, this is a secret!  I'm not
telling you what's in _your_ variable  ;-("

More precisely, what gets printed looks like this:

(let ((c-buffer-is-cc-mode ...) (init ...)) (while init (set ... ...)
(setq init ...))))

The substitution of essential information by these ellipses make the
print useless in this case.

I have checked that print-length and print-level are both nil (as
described in the elisp info page "Output Variables").  I have tried
setting them both to a large integer value instead.  All to no avail.

What am I missing here?

Thanks in advance.

(like "aa"), remove half of them (leaving, say, "a").
