After "To post a message ...", put in a note recommending
plain-text messages, as HTML messages are not handled very well by
the mailing list software.

Replace definition of CFRATSIMP with definition given by S Macrakis
in SF bug report # 620928. New defn fixes the two problem cases
mentioned in the bug report. run_testsuite succeeds, and examples
in the texinfo description of cf are unchanged. (rtest10.mac
contains a few cf-related expressions, so the new defn is
exercised a little bit by the test suite.)

Change uppercase to lowercase, enclose names in @code or @var as
appropriate, rework examples, update and modify introduction somewhat,
modify text in descriptions somewhat, enclose all cross refs in @ref.

Committing initial revision of Spanish translation of Maxima texinfo documents.
Files supplied by Juan Pablo Romero to Robert Dodier. I (Dodier) am committing the files verbatim, excluding
the files{log,vrs,cp,fn,vr,tp,ky,pg,toc,aux} and and
moving tex_es/texinfo.tex into the same directory as the other files.
The basis for the translation was a revision of the English texi files from
some months ago. There are some files not yet translated but the majority of
the text is translated.
A Makefile is needed. An attempt to execute makeinfo by hand failed; apparently there are
some changes that need to be made to these files in order to get a workable document.

Fixed a side effect of a rather questionable use of global variables that
caused tensor components that contained dummy indices to be evaluated
differently in different LISPs.

kill(allbut(props)) -> kill(all)

2005-04-04 00:47:46 Tree
[34f9ba] by amundson amundson

kill has been seriously broken for a long time. kill(all) used to
delete many built-in maxima attributes, while leaving some
user-defined properties behind. Among the many problems caused by this
behavior is the fragility of the test suite. The test suite has been
rearranged several times because some tests interfered with
others. The test suite was also not repeatable -- calling
run_testsuite() twice would result in spurious errors in the second

Now run_testsuite();kill(all);run_testsuite(); produces the expected
result. I have replaced the many instances of kill(allbut(props)) in
the testsuite with kill(all). The former was merely a partial
workaround for serious bugs in kill(all). Further cleanups in the test
suite should now be possible.

The new implementation of kill relies on several lists and hashtables
of builtin symbols, properties, etc. They are all stored in variables
starting with *builtin-. The *builtin- variables are set at the end of
init-cl.lisp, which is loaded at the very end of the Maxima build.

[b6a386] by amundson amundson

During the course of my work to fix kill, I noticed a couple of things
about the way we setup functions for auto-loading:

1) max_ext.lisp sets up auto-loading for a large number of functions
that are now built into maxima. This makes no sense.

2) eigenvectors and eigenvalues are setup for auto-loading in a
different way: via the line

($setup_autoload "eigen.mac" '$eigenvectors '$eigenvalues)

in init-cl.lisp. This causes the spurious message

Warning - you are redefining the MACSYMA function EIGENVALUES
Warning - you are redefining the MACSYMA function EIGENVECTORS

I deleted all the extraneous functions from max_ext.lisp and moved
eigenvalues and eigenvectors into $auto_mexpr commands in
