Erlang prints (some) lists as strings

Well, you could write your own function to print it out however you like,
and pass your list to it:
format_list(L) when list(L) ->
That's about what it will take, since Erlang doesn't have a "character" data
type, and the shell has to guess whether any given integer in a list is
meant to be a number or text.
I haven't tested the above code, by the way, but if it doesn't work as
written, you get the idea, I'm sure...
