Thanks for the suggestion. I added it (with great difficulty - it took 20
minutes to do) to the trap_exit Wiki. Here's the link:

http://www.trapexit.org/Print_Untruncated_Terms_In_The_Shell

The difficulties came from timeouts and getting messages like this:
Erlang Community has a problem

*Sorry! This site is experiencing technical difficulties.*

Try waiting a few minutes and reloading.

(Can't contact the database server: Unknown error (localhost:3500))

It's ironic that a Wiki about Erlang uses PHP and probably MySql and has
performance and reliability problems. Too bad trapexit can't use Erlang to
power the Wiki, but perhaps there aren't suitable Erlang Wiki tools
available.
