~w doesn't print strings as strings. It prints them as a list of integers. 

io:format("~100.p~n", [RecordList]).

works well.

I think ~p is actually what is doing the "pretty printing" including
adding |... when the data is too deep (see io_lib:print). If you want
to print a term completely use ~w.
