Get the debug output as a string

Is there a way I can do this?

struct Ax {
    n: i32,
    m: i32
let ax = Ax { n: 1, m: 2 };
println!("{:?}", ax);
// thel last line output: Ax { n: 1, m: 2 }

let ax_fmt = ax.fmt();
assert_eq!(ax_fmt, "Ax { n: 1, m: 2 }"); //the second paramter comes from the output

You can do format!("{:?}", ax) which returns a String.


let ax_fmt = format!("{ax:?}");

But note that you can't count on the output being anything in particular.
