Sage is a free open-source mathematics software system licensed under
the GPL. It combines the power of many existing open-source packages
into a common Python-based interface.
Mission: Creating a viable free open source alternative to Magma,
Maple, Mathematica and Matlab.
Sage can be used in several ways: through an interactive command line,
by writing stand-alone scripts, through the graphical notebook
interface in a browser, or through the KDE Cantor application (part
of a full Slackware installation).
Building sage requires >8GB of disk space, so you may need to
redefine $TMP and/or $OUTPUT.
See README.BUILDOPTS for additional (important) information about
build options and such.
Future SAGE (7.3+) requires some changes in Slackware's core packages:
- readline must be linked to ncurses
Get readline's SlackBuild script, change this line
make $NUMJOBS static shared || make static shared || exit 1
make $NUMJOBS static shared SHLIB_LIBS=-lncurses || make static
shared SHLIB_LIBS=-lncurses || exit 1
and rebuilt readline.
- Python rebuilt against UCS-4 (enabled by default in next Slackware)
