Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the xintsession package. Version: 0.2 2021-05-05 License: lppl1.3c Summary description: Interactive computing sessions (fractions, floating points, polynomials) Announcement text:
v0.2 (2021-05-05) Execute "etex xintsession", or if available, "rlwrap etex xintsession" in a command line interface. A welcome message is printed, hit the "RET" key. You are now ready to make computations, inclusive of defining variables and functions! Here is an example session: (Please type a command or say `\end') * 1+1/2+1/3+1/4+1/5; (@_1) 137/60 * @_^3 ; (@_2) 2571353/216000 * add(1/i, i=1..50); (@_3) 13943237577224054960759/3099044504245996706400 *&fp fp mode (16 digits) * @_; (@_4) 4.499205338329425 * add(1/i, i=1..1000); (@_5) 7.485470860550346 *&bye Did I say something wrong? Session transcript written on xintsession-210413_20h24.tex No pages of output. Transcript written on xintsession.log. This release removes former toggles &fp16, &fp24, &fp32 and replaces them with "&fp=number" interface. Scientific functions are implemented up to number=62. xint 1.4e or later is required.

xintsession – Interactive computing sessions (fractions, floating points, polynomials)

This package provides support for interactive computing sessions with etex (or pdftex) executed on the command line, on the basis of the xintexpr and polexpr packages.

Once xintsession is loaded, becomes an interactive computing software capable of executing arbitrary precision calculations, or exact calculations with arbitrarily big fractions. It can also manipulate polynomials as algebraic entities.

Numerical variables and functions can be defined during the session, and each evaluation result is stored in automatically labeled variables. A file is automatically created storing inputs and outputs.
