Hi Ric, Thank you very much for this feedback. Don't worry, I don't take it personally, but appreciate it.
And no matter how many hours you wasted before you thought of asking at the fricas-devel mailing list, yes you are right, the documentation is a big mess. I would really like to have it in better shape, but time is always an issue. And clearly the interests of the developers is currently more on improving the mathematical part of FriCAS (i.e. algorithms) than in improving the documentation. Maybe (since I control fricas.github.io) I should put a big red warning saying: If you want to use FriCAS, you should expect many many wasted hours, before you even can compute 1+1. FriCAS has a lot to offer, but before you can take advantage of it you must climb a big mountain, go through hours for installation, or compilation and installation, frustration, learning, learning, learning, looking for the right help pages (because there are many and they are sometimes out-dated and contradicting each other). If you are brave enough to go through all of that, then there is one reliable hint to lower your frustration: write a mail to email@example.com Usually, one of the developers is around and will try to assist you to overcome your frustration. I want to make fricas.github.io the main portal for FriCAS, but there is still a lot to do. When I find time, I will put the code that produces the documentation to github, maybe then others find a channel to send pull requests. Anyway, thanks for sharing your frustration with us. That is and important feedback. Ralf -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "FriCAS - computer algebra system" group.
