It removed the assumption is(i>=a) MACSYMA was unable to evaluate the predicate: i >= a The problem is that dosum adds the assumption a<=i<=b, and then removes it when it's done. But it does this in the global database, not a local one. So it also removes any preexisting identical assumption. It also ignores any inconsistent assumptions: assume(a>i) sum(i,i,a,b) => no error message This is sort of defensible on the grounds that the inner 'i' really isn't the same variable as the global 'i' (as though Maxima understood that)... except that it *is* obeying the global assumptions: assume(i<0) sum(abs(i),i,1,a) => 'sum(i,i,1,a)  You can respond by visiting: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=104933&aid=851765&group_id=4933

This is really annoying. Equal should at least check whether ratsimp(ab)=0. It is also annoying that equal disreps rat expressions for no good reason. Unfortunately, you can't simply add $equal to (mlist mequal) in simpargs because meqp gets confused. But something like that would be good when someone has the time to test thoroughly.

But plot.lisp and toddcoxeter.lisp define it as binary expr: plot.lisp: (defbinop f+ + fixnum) toddcoxeter.lisp: (defmacro f+ (a b)...) The binary definition has overridden the nary definition in the built system, so any loads of source code that depend on nary f+ will run into problems.

Comment By: Robert Dodier (robert_dodier) Date: 20031129 11:35 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=501686 I've rebuilt Maxima using current cvs (as of 20031128). Lisp is clisp 2.31. Now if the line "(or ...)" is commented out, plot2d(x^3,[x,0.5,1.5],[plot_format,ps]); doesn't generate an error, but it just hangs (no postscript output, no ghostview display, no tcl/tk display) until I press ctrlC. The patched version of plot.lisp with the newly rebuilt Maxima yields the expected results with [plot_format, ps], and also with no plot_format specified (shows tcl/tk display), and [plot_format, gnuplot] (executes gnuplot although gnuplot output file appears to be incorrect for the version of gnuplot that is installed), and [plot_format, openmath] (creates output file in openmath format).

The menu appears and disappears upon a click on an item but the required action, eg. configuration, zoom, etc, is _not_ performed. It appears that under KDE, WindowMaker, AfterStep, IceWM, Enlightement, BlackBox and FVWM 2 the menu works fine.  Comment By: Gregory Frascadore (nissplus) Date: 20031128 08:54 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=306040 I saw the same problem with the plot menu under Mac OSX 10.2 using quartzwm and Mac X11 beta. When I tested with twm, the problem went away. Things also work fine under Mac OSX 10.3 (panther) running the release Mac X11. I was able to reproduce the same abnormal behavior with a simple tcl/tk script (tcl/tk 8.4, Fink binary distribution tcltk 8.4.11) so I don't think this is solely an xmaxima problem.  Comment By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Date: 20030310 16:47 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=28849 FWIW, I have no problems with the openplot plot menus with Sawfish and GNOME on either Solaris 7/8 or RH 7.1. Both have standard GNOME installations.  Comment By: Andreas J Guelzow (aguelzow) Date: 20030310 09:42 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=82168 Since this bug makes maxima unusable under a standard gnome installation, I have raised the priority to `7'.  Comment By: Andreas J Guelzow (aguelzow) Date: 20030310 09:39 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=82168 This is not an xmaxima but apparently a core maxima problem: it also affects the plot windows created from within a terminal invocation of maxima. This bug makes the maxima emacs mode unusable: Plotting a function within emacs brings up the plot window. Closing that window via the window manager hangs emacs, dismissing the window from the context menu is impossible since the context menu is nonfunctional.

But maxout.ps simply contains a list of numbers. Please mind: plot3d() works allright. Regards, Uli Kruppa.  Comment By: Robert Dodier (robert_dodier) Date: 20031127 11:16 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=501686 The file plot.lisp contains the function plot2d_ps, which appears to work as intended (as described by describe(plot2d_ps))  plot2d_ps invokes gv to show the figure, and creates a PS file, maxout.ps. However, plot2d does not call plot2d_ps. Perhaps one can fix plot2d by having it call plot2d_ps, but the obvious way to do that (copying the 2 lines for the openmath function) yields a runtime error about longfloat types. So the fix must have to be less naive. I'll try something else.  You can respond by visiting: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=104933&aid=834729&group_id=4933

This is mentioned by describe(nouns) and describe(apply_nouns), although not by describe(ev). I suggest (1) that the description of ev include a mention of ev(foobar, nouns). Since nounform integrals are a common example of noun forms that someone may want to evaluate, I also suggest that the descriptions of (2) integrate and (3) changevar also mention ev(foobar, nouns). Since changevar is often used to convert an integral into a form that is (hopefully) easier to integrate, it seems especially useful to tell how to attempt to evaluate the noun form returned by changevar. Finally I also suggest (4) that we strike the description of apply_nouns, since there is no implementation of it. See also bug report #711539. There may be other contexts in which ev(foobar, nouns) is useful but I haven't looked for them. Stavros Macrakis also suggests (email to mailing list, 25 Nov 2003) that there be documentation specifically on the theme of nouns and verbs. That seems like a larger project, so I'll leave that out of this bug report.  You can respond by visiting: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=104933&aid=850334&group_id=4933
