[erlang-questions] tracing very large terms

I am struggling to debug functions that reference very large terms
(thousands of lines to print).  Crash reports and trace outputs are huge and
finding the interesting bits is hard.  This isn't a trace pattern problem;
actual number of trace outputs is maybe a dozen or so.

Just wondering what others do to manage this situation.  I've looked for a
text editor that can do parenthesis folding, but no luck so far.  Ideas?

Dan.
