Dear Gap - Forum,

Thomas Breuer wrote:

In this example, the character table can be fetched from the
library via

gap> tbl:= CharTable( "3.Suz.2" );
CharTable( "3.Suz.2" )

I just want to make a small, rather technical remark here :
The function `CharTable' is only defined in GAP 3,
in GAP 4 it is called `CharacterTable' (and is, by the
way, not yet documented in GAP 4 beta 5).

Concerning the examples for semidirect product
constructions also given by Thomas Breuer :
There is no function `PermGroup' to convert
a given group to a permutation group in GAP 4,
this also works only in GAP 3 up to now.
In GAP 4, there is also no method for
`ExtraspecialGroup(IsPermGroup, ...)',
as far as I have seen, this works only for the
default category `IsPcGroup'.

Kind regards,
