10627 add options for printing matrices jhpalmieri jason was "On [http://ask.sagemath.org/question/303/displaying-matrices-with-instead-of-0 ask.sagemath.org], it has been suggested that we should be able to print matrices using `.` instead of `0`. We could also use a space instead of `0`. Perhaps we could print `+` instead of `1` and `-` instead of `-1` for a (1,-1)-matrix. All of these could be implemented by passing optional arguments to the `str` method for matrices, for example
{{{
sage: mat = random_matrix(ZZ, 50)
sage: mat.str(zero='.')
}}}
or
{{{
sage: mat.str(use_dot=True)
}}}
We need to figure out what options to allow for right now (although we can add more later) and what syntax to use for them.
