Dear Gap Forum,

here is probably a trivial question on GAP, but at least after a

first glance at the manual, I was not able to find an answer.

(I have to add that I am definitely not a gap expert...)

My problem is (or can redeuced to) the following:

I want to define a function, say F(n), such that, for a given n, F(n)

returns the free group generated by x1,...,xn.

The funcion FreeGroup, as far as I can understand, do not allows to

have as an argument, a sequence of element as x1, ..., xn for a

generic n.

I would greately appreciate any suggestion.

Let me ask another question: is there a guide to GAP which is

reasonabely quick to read? The manual is surely extremely complete,

but I have to confess that in front of the 1,200 pages I am a

little scared ...

Thank you for the attention.

Greetings.
