Dear gap forum,
If I use the -n option in gap to prevent echoing in my emacs shell
window, then I can not access the help system. Here is what happens:
(using emacs 19.22)
[gap3r4p0]< 14 > bin/gap -b -m 4 -l lib/ -h doc/ gap> ? ? Welcome to GAP ___________________________________________ Welcome to GAP
Welcome to GAP.
GAP is a system for computational group theory.
Enter '?About GAP' for a step by step introduction to GAP.
Enter '?Help' for information how to use the GAP help system.
Enter '?Chapters' for a list of the chapters of the GAP help system.
Enter '?Copyright' for the terms under which you can use and copy GAP.
In each case do *not* enter the single quotes(') , they are used in help
sections only to delimit text that you actually enter.
gap> [gap3r4p0]< 15 > bin/gap -b -n -m 4 -l lib/ -h doc/
Syntax error: expression expected
Another question - with the manual growing several hundred pages every
release, it's getting hard to even know what is even available. Has
anyone written a converter to info? Such a format would make it easy
to browse the manual.
