4 Installation

4.1 Installing this package

The Polenta package is part of the standard distribution of GAP and so normally there should be no need to install it separately. If by any chance it is not part of your GAP distribution, then the standard method is to unpack the package into the pkg directory of your GAP distribution. This will create a polenta subdirectory. For other non-standard options please see Chapter Reference: Installing a GAP Package of the GAP Reference Manual.

Note that the GAP-Packages Alnuth and Polycyclic are needed for this package. Normally they should be contained in your distribution. If not, they can be obtained at http://www.gap-system.org/Packages/packages.html.

4.2 Loading the Polenta package

If the Polenta package is not already loaded then you have to request it explicitly. This can be done via the LoadPackage (Reference: LoadPackage) command.

4.3 Running the test suite

Once the package is installed, it is possible to check the correct installation by running the test suite of the package.

    gap> ReadPackage( "Polenta", "tst/testall.g" );

For more details on Test Files see Section Reference: Test Files of the GAP Reference Manual.

If the test suite runs into an error, even though the packages Polycyclic and Alnuth and their depdendencies have been correctly installed, then please send a message to max.horn@math.uni-giessen.de including the error message.
