GAP 4.10.0

For an overview of changes in GAP 4.10.0 see file.

Linux and macOS

Download one of the archives below, unpack it and run ./configure; make in the unpacked directory. Then change to the pkg subdirectory and call ../bin/ to run the script which will build most of the packages that require compilation (provided sufficiently many libraries, headers and tools are available). For further details, see here. Expert users can find the description of all installation options in the file.

gap-4.10.0.tar.gz 341 MB sha256: 314b8d949c0bb01ef8bee199b29571d42714df660aba0d76ded254f58295904f
gap-4.10.0.tar.bz2 288 MB sha256: 2dc71364b7418d16f8b99ca914971996fa4416294fa3ae8fb336c873c946abb6 372 MB sha256: 3a5848f5a7e24925df4373a1cfc9653fc9c115cc630eb91d60672f6d7ca611bd

You may also consider one of the alternative distributions. Note, however, that these are updated independently and may not yet provide the latest GAP release.


We strongly recommend to use the .exe installer which contains binaries for GAP (compiled with the support of GMP and readline libraries) and for selected GAP packages, and provides the standard installation procedure. Note that the path to the GAP directory should not contain spaces. For example, you may install it in C:\gap-4.10.0 (default), D:\gap-4.10.0 or C:\Math\GAP\gap-4.10.0, but you must not install it in a directory named like C:\Program files\gap-4.10.0 or C:\Users\alice\My Documents\gap-4.10.0 etc.

gap-4.10.0.exe 406 MB sha256: 6e246f72a85b8c1d988c188efcf8d7a88e1121793917259a322cbc0ad45691f4

The .exe installer should work for the majority of users. Alternatively (for example, if you don't have administrator's privileges on your Windows computer), you may use the archive and edit .bat files manually following instructions from the file. Furthermore, in case of technical problems with readline support under Windows (e.g. command line editing doesn't work, or GAP crashes at startup), we recommend to try the archive. 434 MB sha256: 87cc05ccd89e347460d2c8101141940b802b25c957c871b5e4f465bc4f7f4dae 430 MB sha256: 354f079494791e8abffb5db19641303819aabb08d60de97fb68bc73b98522352

In addition, there is an experimental 64-bit version of GAP for Windows here: 436 MB sha256: 4c9742ca54c5ecc808a3c6c6df576e95ae5f344dc01bffab318bd058fbbecd4e
