flexible general-purpose computer algebra language. The syntax uses a

Read the file INSTALL for instructions on how to compile and install
Yacas. Yacas is portable across most Unix-ish platforms and requires a
standard C++ compiler such as "g++". Precompiled Red Hat (RPM) and
Debian (DEB) packages are also available.
For detailed information on Yacas features and usage, please see the
