Hi,

I read the manual, and I knew about the difference you so kindly point out.

Do you mean that when converted to Erlang abstract format, the term [1,a,3] 
and the term represented by the string "[1,a,3]" are supposed to be 
represented differently? If yes and you know why it should be so, please 
explain because to me they look as they should be the same.

regards,
Vlad
