I think an on line approach is helpful and we have a service that writes
Print functions based on user input --

This input: (list<int>)
results in this output:

Print(std::ostream& so, const list<int>& abt1)
  int indentation = 0;
  so.fill(' ');
  so << "\nabt1: ";
  so << "list has " << abt1.size() << "\n";
  indentation += 2;
  list<int >::const_iterator mediator1 = abt1.begin();
  list<int >::const_iterator omega1 = abt1.end();
  for (; mediator1 != omega1; ++mediator1) {
    so.width(indentation); so << " ";
    so << (*mediator1);
    so << "\n";
  indentation -= 2;

  so << std::flush;
