Dear Mr. Tang Ko Cheung,

Since Martin Schoenert, to whose answer in the GAP Forum you reply, is

at present absent from aachen and will be so for the next few days, I

just want to reply briefly instead.

GAP has not got notebook or worksheet faciliies like Mathematica or

Maple. These are certainly nice commodities, nevertheless we have not

put a similar development anywhere in our priority list. Please

realize that we are a small mathematics department and our first

priority is the development of the mathematical facilities of

GAP. Generally speaking, perhaps also commercial systems have both a

stronger natural interest as well as more free means for the

development of such parts of the surface.

As to the very detailed technical points in your letter, I do not

think that they are of great interest to the large majority of the

more than 300 participants of the GAP-forum. For answering such

question we have created the address GAP-trouble, where we try as well

as we can to answer such questions too without bothering the forum

members. I expect that Martin Schoenert will try to answer (with copy

to the small group of experts reading the GAP-trouble correspondence),

also your further technical questions. May I suggest however that we

stop their further discussion in the GAP-forum.

With kind regards Joachim Neubueser
