Log Message: Update to Mathomatic 16.0.2 CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 16.0.1 TO BRING IT UP TO THE NEXT VERSION: A nice cleanup and documenting of everything, while my mind still works. 07/23/12 - Enabled links in "manual.pdf" (the Mathomatic User Guide and Command Reference), they were not working before, but they work great now. 07/24/12 - Allow -a option ("set alternative") with sets alternative color mode, useful in MS-Windows when using Cygwin with the MinGW compiled version. 07/27/12 - Two bug fixes today: Fixed using rlwrap under Cygwin and possibly other places, when running rmath. get_yes_no() question asker wasn't working in Cygwin or rmath. Fixed to always ask the question, even if the input is not a TTY. 07/28/12 - Reading directories and empty files gives an error now. 07/30/12 - Split off changes.txt to changes.txt and changes_series_15.txt. changes.txt and NEWS now contain only series 16 changes. Added tests/batman_gnuplot_bug.in to prove there is a plotting bug in gnuplot itself. 08/01/12 - Removed directive to use large font in the CSS for all Mathomatic documentation. This is so it can be browsed easily with a mobile device. The font size should be set by the user. 08/02/12 - A one-sided expression with an equals sign now only sets the expression equal to zero if autocalc didn't work on it. In the Symbolic Math Library, or without autocalc enabled, all is the same. This makes it more likely purely numerical input is only calculated, even when preceded or followed by an equals sign, when autocalc is enabled. Reason for this change: Why would you want to set a constant equal to 0? Fixed a bunch more error reporting bugs coded into version 16.0.1 of Mathomatic to apply identical operations to both sides of an equation. All fixed now. Points to the error correctly now, too. 08/04/12 - Major change to Symbolic Math Library. It now works exactly like the application when it comes to purely numerical input, approximating and displaying the result, however sign variables are not expanded and the result is not 100% simplified, so running "simplify sign" afterwards helps with that. To revert to the old way, just turn off autocalc, or set the numerical input equal to some normal variable; then there will be no automatic approximation nor simplification. You can tell when an input has been approximated because it was numerical input, because it will always be preceded with "answer =". 08/05/12 - m4/degrees.m4 copied with m4/functions.m4, when installing with "make m4install", thanks to a suggestion by Reini Urban, maintainer of the Cygwin version. Mathomatic version 16.0.2 released Monday 08/06/12. CHANGES MADE TO MATHOMATIC 16.0.0 TO BRING IT UP TO THE NEXT VERSION: 07/06/12 - Confirmed successful compilation and testing with the Tiny C compiler (tcc). Only needed to set the tcc linker library directories to the current gcc library directories to make it work (using the -L option). Searched globally for the word "simply" and fixed many outdated texts in the Mathomatic documentation and READMEs, deleting some wrongly used "simply"s, too. 07/07/12 - Allow "set modulus_mode language", where language is C, Java, Python, or positive. 07/08/12 - Now leaving the "UNIX" C preprocessor define alone, when "HANDHELD" is defined. "UNIX" was previously forced undefined. 07/11/12 - "make test", "make check", and ./t now display \ the actual Mathomatic version number being tested. matho-primes now has a -v (display version number) option, like Mathomatic does. Mathomatic now automatically clears out all old numeric calculations if it runs out of equation spaces, requiring no action from the user. 07/12/12 - The solve command never needs the "repeat solve" prefix anymore. The repeat flag is always set for the solve command, so that it will always do full simplifies when verifying. Added quadratic formula derivation and proof to "tests/quadratic.in". 07/17/12 - I came up with a swinging new and easy way to add, subtract, multiply, divide, modular and integer divide, and raise to the power of both sides of an equation by any expression. To add x+1 to both sides of the current equation, just type "+=x+1" at the main prompt. To divide both sides by c^2, type "/=c^2". You can add stuff to non-equations too, this way. Be sure and use the simplify command after this if needed, because only a small amount of simplification is done by default, just enough so you can see what is happening. 07/20/12 - Changed floating point to rational floating point conversion routine (f_to_fraction()) to ignore converting anything with over 15 digits, for greater accuracy. This fixes some small accuracy bugs: "factor number 17!" \ now gives an error instead of the wrong value. 07/21/12 - Integrate, Laplace, and Numerical Integrate commands now warn when the current equation is not a properly solved equation. Mathomatic version 16.0.1 released Sunday 07/22/12.
