why is coll object out putting "symbol"?

October 22, 2010 | 4:20 pm

i’m trying to store an array of messages in a coll object. they consist of words and spaces. if the message is only one word, then coll is prepending the word "symbol" onto the message upon retrieval. any way to turn this off? if not, how do i remove this "symbol " (including the space after) from the output, and leave multiword messages unchanged? thanks.

well, only one word could as well be a list with only one argument: "list david"
