Update to Mathomatic 15.2.0
CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 15.2.0 TO BRING IT UP TO THE NEXT VERSION:
All makefiles were improved. Library test/example program is renamed to
Package maintainers please take note: support for the DESTDIR environment
added to the makefiles; for proper operation when packaging version 15.2.1 or
please remove any patches for missing DESTDIR support.
m4 Mathomatic should work now when included in the Mathomatic package (make
Thank you for packaging Mathomatic! If I did anything wrong, please let me
8/26/10 - Added the -e option, which processes mathematical expressions and
instead of input files on the shell command line. For example,
"mathomatic -eq 2+3" gives "answer = 5". This functionality has been
many times by Mathomatic command line users. A complete example:
CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 15.1.6 TO BRING IT UP TO THE NEXT VERSION:
Minor improvements were made to the user documentation.
8/22/10 - Removed "Complex number roots approximated" warning message, since
this happens often.
Capitalized E, I, PI, and Pi are now accepted as the universal
constants e, i, and pi,
without needing to enter "set no case". This allows Mathomatic to
accept Mathematica style expression input.
m4 Mathomatic now additionally accepts Mathematica style capitalized
matho and rmath now display elapsed, CPU, and system times in seconds
8/23/10 - Fixed #equation-number entry at the main prompt to always work and
allow an expression
or equation following on the same line to be entered at that equation
For example: "#10 y=1/x" will work now;
previously only worked if equation space number 10 was previously
allocated and used.
The way it works is: all equation spaces up to and including number
10 are allocated,
if not already allocated, upon entry of "#10".
Equations spaces are allocated with the memory allocator malloc(3).
CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 15.1.5 TO BRING IT UP TO THE NEXT VERSION:
7/26/10 - Disabled ncurses call for auto-color detection when CYGWIN is defined
compiling the source code, due to a reported problem of readline
ncurses in Cygwin.
7/28/10 - Disabled readline history save file for the Cygwin port,
because it is a filename that starts with a period.
7/31/10 - Added "set fractions_display" option, to allow disabling the
automatic conversion of
fractions like .5 to 1/2 for display.
Developer requested and useful in the symbolic math library,
when numerical fraction output isn't wanted.
8/01/10 - Fixed a memory leak when ignoring the output string in the symbolic
8/04/10 - Preserve overflowed powers like 2^2222 rather than aborting with an
Allow simplification of math like 2*2^2222 and 2/2^2222.
8/08/10 - matho-primes runs twice as fast with the -ffast-math gcc compilation
which is now enabled by default. Don't try -ffast-math with the main
program though, because then Mathomatic won't work properly.
CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 15.1.4 TO BRING IT UP TO THE NEXT VERSION:
Many minor tweaks and improvements.
7/03/10 - Makefiles and compile scripts were corrected and enhanced
7/06/10 - Changed all "#if true" and "#if false" conditional commenting to "#if
1" and "#if 0"
in the C source code, thanks to Min Sik Kim of NetBSD pkgsrc.
CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 15.1.3 TO BRING IT UP TO THE NEXT VERSION:
All of the Unix man pages and user manuals for Mathomatic were fixed.
The compare and "solve verify" commands now simplify more thoroughly with
for better expression equality determination.
6/17/10 - Greatly improved file operation error reporting by using the
6/18/10 - Fixed categories in "icons/mathomatic.desktop";
Mathomatic now goes under valid categories, mainly Education.
CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 15.1.2 TO BRING IT UP TO THE NEXT VERSION:
6/6/10 - I made mistakes in the improvement to the simplify command of version
the original working simplify logic of version 15.1.1 is now restored,
CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 15.1.1 TO BRING IT UP TO THE NEXT VERSION:
A general cleanup was done.
A small improvement was made to the final result of the simplify and fraction
Showing intermediate results in the calculate, sum, and product commands is now
done with "set debug 1".
5/28/10 - Added "tests/collatz.in", the Collatz conjecture as an automatically
CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 15.1.0 TO BRING IT UP TO THE NEXT VERSION:
Code and documentation cleanup.
5/21/10 - Added "primes/matho-sum", a utility that sums its command line
arguments or standard input.
Use "matho-primes 0 2000000 | matho-sum" to find the sum of all
primes less than 2,000,000.
Solves Project Euler problem #10:
5/23/10 - Primes (') are allowed in variable names now, if not using the
symbolic math library, so that the
derivative, integrate, and nintegrate commands can change the
dependent variable to y', y'', etc.
This can be turned on in the symbolic math library by the command
Non-alphanumeric characters in variable names are now converted to
underline characters (_)
when exporting to a programming language or to a different program.
CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 15.0.8 TO BRING IT UP TO THE NEXT VERSION:
5/10/10 - Added "help constants" command.
5/11/10 - Integer variables are now specified by using a variable name that
starts with "integer",
like "integer1", "integer_x", etc. Currently only the modulus
operator "%" checks
for integer variables, to help with simplification.
5/12/10 - Corrected the output string type of the symbolic math library API.
It was erroneously declared
as type "const", possibly causing a memory leak.
5/13/10 - Moved and adapted "makefile.lib" to "lib/makefile", so the symbolic
math library build is isolated.
Previously "make clean" was required between different builds. All
makefiles require GNU make now.
CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 15.0.7 TO BRING IT UP TO THE NEXT VERSION:
4/26/10 - Allow "make pdf" to generate PDF documentation from the HTML
documentation with htmldoc.
Please read the comments in the makefile for all available options.
4/29/10 - For every makefile, CFLAGS has been modified to include OPTFLAGS as
required by the Fedora Linux
build system, and OPTFLAGS defaults to the optional gcc specific
flags like optimization.
In the symbolic math library, made available the equation number of
the result of calling the API,
if also stored in an equation space. The result equation number is
stored in the global "result_en".
Useful if you want to know where the result was stored, to act on it
with further commands.
CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 15.0.6 TO BRING IT UP TO THE NEXT VERSION:
Corrections and improvements to the documentation were made.
4/3/10 - Vastly improved the "factor number" user interface, now factors
integer expressions like 2^32-1.
"factor number" is disabled in library mode.
4/13/10 - The real and imaginary commands no longer fail when the expression is
just a warning is given.
4/14/10 - Changed normal display of "-1*" to "-", for prettier 2D expression
so things like "-a" display properly, not as "-1*a".
CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 15.0.5:
1/28/10 - Added a Python utility called "primorial" to the Prime Number Tools
that multiplies together the results of matho-primes, displaying the
of the integers given on the command line.
3/18/10 - Changed author email address to "gesslein%linux.com@localhost".
3/23/10 - Catch SIGHUP and SIGTERM signals for proper termination of the
readline was messing up when Mathomatic was terminated by closing the
The plot command now always plots expressions with grid marks
displayed for reference.
CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 15.0.4:
1/21/10 - In the makefile, changed the HTML man page generator back to rman
groff HTML output looks really bad and rman allows linking to other
groff is no longer used.
1/24/10 - Fixed "make m4install", the installed rmath and matho programs
1/27/10 - Added GNU LGPL license notices to every C source file with a
for proper protections.
CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 15.0.3:
1/9/10 - Fixed a problem only in the version 15.0.3 makefile, where it didn't
the CC environment variable set by the user, instead it always used
as the C compiler.
CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 15.0.2:
12/27/09 - Moved get_screen_size() from main.c to am.c because it is used in
the library when
compile-time options UNIX or CYGWIN are defined.
Thanks to Cygwin port maintainer Reini Urban for noticing and fixing
Defining UNIX or CYGWIN in library mode is not recommended.
12/31/09 - Added code to allow any command to be preceded by "repeat", which
repeat flag for the following command. Most commands ignore the
1/1/10 - Ported divide and roots commands to be repeatable. Also repeatable
calculate and eliminate commands.
1/2/10 - Allow Taylor series computation even if the specified differentiation
is not found in the expression, giving a warning.
Ported simplify command to be a repeatable full simplify; that is,
"repeat simplify" repeatedly runs the simplify command until the
to the smallest size expression.
1/7/10 - Thanks to pretty C code submitted by Simon Geard,
the code and variables commands have been made much more readable.
1/8/10 - Made Mathomatic easier to compile under Solaris, thanks to Michael
Pogue of Sun.
Fixed failure to compile under BSD Unix when compiling with readline
CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 15.0.1:
12/19/09 - The last few versions fix the ugliness caused by the GCD factoring
change made on 6/22/09.
Today's change factors out the numerical GCD of rational
coefficients as needed to simplify.
Most simplification results should be beautiful and the simplest
possible again now,
without the misleading observed magnitude caused by always factoring
out the GCD,
which was why the change of 6/22/09 was made.
CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 15.0.0:
12/12/09 - Fixed a problem with the -q (quiet mode) option being ignored if the
were ever saved with the "set save" command.
12/13/09 - Added code to allow Mathomatic output to be redirected by default.
Fixed the derivative command to be successful even when the result
when compiled as a library.
12/14/09 - Added ability to log symbolic math library results, and made command
more consistent in the library by always returning the final result
12/16/09 - The factor command now factors more by factoring out the GCD of
CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 14.6.3 TO BRING IT UP TO 15.0.0:
Cleanup and more bug fixes.
11/26/09 - Added detection of the terminal's ANSI color availability, when
readline is enabled.
11/28/09 - Added detection of divide by zero and NaN when using the "solve
for more correct results.
Solving now factors out the GCD of rational coefficients, for
The fixes today are from errors solving equations like (2*x/(x - 3))
+ 3 = 6/(x - 3)
11/29/09 - Disallow the variable named "nan". NaN cannot be directly entered
11/30/09 - Added shell scripts "t" and "tests/t" to easily test Mathomatic by
12/2/09 - The fraction command now factors out the GCD of rational coefficients
solve command does, so that coefficients in algebraic fractions
The GCD verifying routine was perfected by making it very strict,
like it should be.
