However make install dies with: Making install in src make[1]: Entering directory `/home/ronis/Project/notar/maxima/src' make[2]: Entering directory `/home/ronis/Project/notar/maxima/src' /bin/sh ../mkinstalldirs /usr/local/bin /bin/install c maxima /usr/local/bin/maxima /bin/sh ../mkinstalldirs "/usr/local/lib/maxima/5.9.0.1cvs/binaryclisp" /bin/install c m 644 binaryclisp/maxima.mem "/usr/local/lib/maxima/5.9.0.1cvs/binaryclisp/maxima.mem" /bin/install c "/usr/local/lib/maxima/5.9.0.1cvs/binaryclisp/lisp.run" /bin/install: too few arguments Try `/bin/install help' for more information. make[2]: *** [installclisp] Error 1 make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/ronis/Project/notar/maxima/src' make[1]: *** [installam] Error 2 make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/ronis/Project/notar/maxima/src' make: *** [installrecursive] Error 1 It looks like configure hasn't found my clisp installation.

Closing this report as fixed.  Comment By: David Ronis (ronis) Date: 20040121 17:41 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=609364 I figured out the problem. It seems that when you don't pass configure the enableclisp flag, it doesn't initialize the clisp_runtime library (even though it does autodetect clisp). Sounds like a bug, but perhaps not; this was not the behavior in slightly older CVS's. In any event, a comment in the INSTALL file would be in order if this is not a bug.

This is essentially the same case as x^y at (0,0). Right now, Maxima simplifies x^0=>1 and 0^x=>0 (just like beta(x,1)). The difference is that Maxima gives an error for 0^0, 0.0^0, etc. Longerterm, it would be nice if 0^x kept as a side condition (x # 0) of the simplification, but for now....  >Comment By: Robert Dodier (robert_dodier) Date: 20060710 23:03 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=501686 Same behavior observed in 5.9.3cvs. About simplifying 0^x to 'if x # 0 then 0 else 1, that is certainly workable with unevaluated conditionals, see share/contrib/boolsimp/ for a proposed implementation.

This is of course perfectly consistent (the null case), but it is certainly an error if actually input this way. True, it might be useful in the case apply(part,cons (expression,specifier)), where specifier is an argument, possibly the empty list, but using apply this way is somewhat unclean. I would prefer that there be an explicit form of part where the specifier is a list. The problem with that solution, of course, is that we'd then need corresponding versionf of substpart, inpart, substinpart. Yecch. For now, I would recommend giving a warning message for this case. It would be nice if there could, however, be only one such warning per interaction. I don't think we do anything like that right now.  >Comment By: Robert Dodier (robert_dodier) Date: 20060710 22:57 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=501686 Same behavior in 5.9.3cvs. FWIW I don't see anything wrong here. part(x) => x is OK by me  laissez faire et laissez passer.

Mathematically, (1)^(1/4) = %i^(1/2) = (%i)^(1/2), but the first two simplify to 1/(1)^(1/4), while the third simplifies to sqrt(%i). There are other similar cases.

But plog(x^2) simplifies to 2*log(x) (after asking whether x is nonzero). This simplification is incorrect for x=1. The main meaning of plog appears to be that it will *carry out* the logarithm when the imagpart is a multiple of %pi/4. makelist([log(x),plog(x)],x,[1,%i,1+%i,%i*2,2+%i]) => [[0,0], [LOG(%I), %I*%PI/2 ], [LOG(%I+1), LOG(2)/2+%I*%PI/4 ], [LOG(2*%I), LOG(2)+%I*%PI/2 ], [LOG(%I+2), PLOG(%I+2) ] ] And the only use of plog within Maxima is by defint. I am not even sure that defint actually needs plog (as opposed to plain log)  maybe it is some sort of vestige?  >Comment By: Robert Dodier (robert_dodier) Date: 20060710 22:38 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=501686 Same behavior in 5.9.3cvs.  You can respond by visiting: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=104933&aid=820770&group_id=4933

This leads to incorrect results (infinf => 0, inf*0 => 0), incomplete simplification (inf^3 doesn't simplify, though inf is always correct), and noncanonical representations (minf doesn't simplify to inf). It also seems to me that minf should be represented uniformly as inf, not as a special case. Specialcasing these objects in the general simplifier will add a very small overhead to all simplifications. The case that reminded me of this problem is abs(minf) =>minf.  Comment By: Stavros Macrakis (macrakis) Date: 20040321 14:10 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=588346 More problematic cases with inverse functions: asin(sin(inf)) => inf This should either not simplify, or give IND (if it is clever) or UND (if it is less clever). but exp(log(inf)) => inf tan(atan(inf)) => inf and the like are OK (by accident, but, hey!)
