#191 entermatrix does not work in xmaxima


The command entermatrix(2,2); or with any other
arguments causes xmaxima to freeze. If I resize the
window it spits out an error message. entermaxima
works fine in a terminal shell.

    The problem is that entergmatrix dialog lack end of lines on
    Try entermatrix in console with clisp and GCL and see the
    diffrence. In both cases emtermatrix works but with GCL
    all prompts mount in one line. It seems also that xmaxima
    requires one more additional EOL. So with xmaxima -l clisp
    emtermatrix works but looks exactly as iwith GCL in console
    (all prompts in one line). Actually it works also with
    xmaxima -l gcl if you enter all responces blindly.

    I have had a similar problem with the windows version of
    Maxima and I have had to enter values blindly in order to
    enter a matrix... With the queries for such values being
    printed afterwords...

    For the record, entermatrix works as expected (with prompts
    interspersed with inputs) with Maxima 5.9.2 and 5.9.3 (both
    GCL 2.6.7) on Windows.

    Also works OK with 5.9.3 / Clisp 2.34, Xmaxima and command
    line Maxima, on Linux.

    If it also works with GCL on Linux then we can close this

    entermatrix also works OK with Maxima 5.9.3cvs1 / GCL 2.6.7
    / Xmaxima and command line Maxima on Linux. Also works for
    other combinations, see other comments below.

    I don't know what specific changes to Maxima and/or GCL
    might have affected this, but I can't reproduce it. Closing
    this report as "works for me".
