From the website at http://maxima.sourceforge.net/: Maxima is a system for the manipulation of symbolic and numerical expressions, including differentiation, integration, Taylor series, Laplace transforms, ordinary differential equations, systems of linear equations, polynomials, and sets, lists, vectors, matrices, and tensors. Maxima yields high precision numeric results by using exact fractions, arbitrary precision integers, and arbitrarily precision floating point numbers. Maxima can plot functions and data in two and three dimensions. === maxima-5.16.3 (Michael Abshoff, September 27th, 2008) ===

How to make a new version of the Maxima SAGE spkg.

  1. Go to http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=4933

    • and download the source tar.gz ball. That's near the bottom of that page (i.e., hard to find if you don't scroll past all the big red adds).
  2. Extract the tarball to replace the src/ subdirectory of this package.
  3. Type
    • /spkg-dist
    • then create an spkg from this directory, with
      • sage -pkg maxima-x.y.z
  4. Test the resulting maxima-??.spkg.
  5. Evidently, it's necessary to also make a new clisp
    • package (identical to before), but with a bigger number, so no matter what maxima gets built against the correct version of clisp (this can be an issue for directories that have been moved). This has nothing to do with maxima-??.spkg -- it's about making a new clisp-??.spkg.
