Puzzlement about In and Out with Wrappers
Posted:

The documentation I've found explains the output of the following input (assuming =91x=92 has been Clear=92d):
x ^ 2 x ^ 3 // FortranForm
But in the output of the following cell, why does x^4 precede x**3, and why is x**3 not demarcated by =93Out [...] // FortranForm?=94
x ^ 2 x ^ 3 // FortranForm x ^ 4
And in the output of the following cell, it seems that x**4 has obliterated x**3. Why did this happen? (I know that the unwrapped x^3 is still available in Out [  3 ] ).
x ^ 2 x ^ 3 // FortranForm x ^ 4 // FortranForm x ^ 5
