Dear Gap Forum,

By the Library of Character Tables I could get the character table of A17 very soon:
gap> CharacterTable("A17");
But it is a table. How can I change it to a list?
If I use the function "Irr" then I should wait for a long time.

Calling `Irr' is the right thing to do for accessing the characters.

This character table is an example of a library table
for which the list of irreducible characters is not stored
in the library file;
instead there is a GAP function which computes the characters
on demand, and this needs some time.

Kind regards,
