Prints compositional objects with appropriate missing encodings.

a compositional object
further arguments to
logical: Shall 0 be treated as "Below detection Limit" with unkown limit.
Missings are displayed with an appropriate encoding:
MARMissing at random: The value is missing independently of its true value.
MNARMissing NOT at random: The value is missing dependently of its true value, but without a known systematic. Maybe a better name would be: Value dependen missingness.
BDTbelow detection limit (with unspecified detection limit): The value is missing because it was below an unkown detection limit.
<Detectionlimitbelow detection limit (with specified detection limit): The value is below the displayed detection limit.
SZStructural Zero: A true value is either bound to be zero or does not exist for structural nonrandom reasons. E.g. the portion of pregnant girls at a boys school.
ERRError: An illegal encoding value was found in the object.
An invisible version of x.
The policy of treatment of zeroes, missing values and values below detecion limit is explained in depth in compositions.missings.
