[erlang-questions] truncated list with ellipsis

Hi,
Total newbie question but not an answer to it so far in the Armstrong  
book (brilliant book btw, haven't enjoyed my computer and programming  
this much for years) or in the documentation that I installed with  
erlang (the erlang reference and the 4 day curse). I tried a google  
search for erlang, beam, ellipsis too.

So...just learning the basics and my kid is in the first year at  
school and so I made a quick function that does the "Number Bonds" of  
N. It works OK but when I run it interactively the list is truncated  
and ellipsis are shown instead. Is there anyway I can have see the  
total list?

An exmplae would be like this:

1> [{A,B} || A <- lists:seq(0, 50), B <- lists:seq(0, 50), A + B =:=  
50].
[{0,50},
  {1,49},
  {2,48},
  {3,47},
  {4,46},
  {5,45},
  {6,44},
  {7,43},
  {8,42},
  {9,41},
  {10,40},
  {11,39},
  {12,38},
  {13,37},
  {14,36},
  {15,35},
  {16,34},
  {17,33},
  {18,32},
  {19,31},
  {20,30},
  {21,29},
  {22,28},
  {23,27},
  {24,26},
  {25,25},
  {26,24},
  {27,...},
  {...}|...]


Using Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.6.2 [source] [async-threads:0]  
[kernel-poll:false] installed via MacPorts on OS X 10.4.11.

Cheers

Russell
