In Macsyma the $ sign was to make it so that it did not print out to save space,time etc.
Now in maxima the $ appears no where in the index yet i see it being used in the help. But using it here causes eternal hang up and Interrupt does NOthing.Restart Maxima does work in this case though all too often even that does nothing esp in long continuous printouts.
A case in point:
I did not put in the extra ' ; ' seems maxima automatically put it in. Anyway in response to the above command line it is eternally in the process of ' Reading Maxima output '. And the
Interrupt maxima does nothing.
