Subject description: Open source Maple or Mathematica type program.
 

Great program. Use it as a simple calculator...

Code:
In>4+3
Out>7


Or more... it can handle almost anything you can throw at it. For example if you forgot what the fist derivative of sin(x)^-1 was...

Code:
In>D(x)(Sin(x)^-1)
Out>-Cos(x)*Sin(x)^(-2)



From the YACAS home page.

YACAS is an easy to use, general purpose Computer Algebra System, a program for symbolic manipulation of mathematical expressions. It uses its own programming language designed for symbolic as well as arbitrary-precision numerical computations. The system has a library of scripts that implement many of the symbolic algebra operations; new algorithms can be easily added to the library. YACAS comes with extensive documentation (hundreds of pages) covering the scripting language, the functionality that is already implemented in the system, and the algorithms we used.

Does it display pretty multi colored 3D graphical representations like mathematica does?

Hi,
i installed the package without any error message.
When a start the program i get this lines in the program window:

"yacasinit.ys(1) : File not found

yacasinit.ys(1) : File not found

yacasinit.ys(1) : File not found

This is Yacas version '1.2.2'. ." .. and so on.

And when i type a simple command for example 2*3 the answer is:
CommandLine(1) : Error parsing expression, near token *

So i can't use for any expression (+,-, /,*, D(X) .....)

(my config: puppy linux 4.00 full install p3/700Mhz 256 ram)

have you got and idea what is the problem?
thank you

MERRY CHRISTMAS FOR ALL PUPPY FAN

the solution is:
insert this: "cd /share/yacas"
in the /bin/run-yacas script
before the "rxvt -e yacas" line

...and then to run yacas from the command line you have to type run-yacas. (Thanks for the PET -- yacas is cool!-)
