Mathomatic implements most of the rules of algebra for the
mathematical operators +, -, *, /, % (modulus), and power (including
Mathomatic can symbolically:
* combine and solve equations,
* completely simplify and compare expressions and equations,
* do simple calculus transformations and series,
* do standard, complex number, modular, and polynomial arithmetic,
* generate optimized C, Java, and Python language code from
simplified equations,
* plot expressions with gnuplot in two or three dimensions,
* do quick calculations, colorize expressions, etc.

mathomatic (16.0.4-1build1) bionic; urgency=high
* No change rebuild to pick up -fPIE compiler default
2012-09-10 - George Gesslein II <>
mathomatic (16.0.4-1) experimental; urgency=low
* New upstream release
- enhancements have been implemented
* debian/control
- replace build dependency libreadline-dev with libeditline-dev,
because the readline license is incompatible with LGPL
* debian/rules
- replaced all occurrences of readline with editline; Closes: #687063
2012-08-08 - George Gesslein II <>
mathomatic (16.0.2-1) experimental; urgency=low
* New upstream release
- more educational uses and functionality, some bug fixes
* debian/rules
- changed "make m4install-degrees" to "make m4install"
because most CAS programs use radian trig, not degree trig;
Mathomatic is more of a CAS than a calculator
The user can type "rmath /usr/share/mathomatic/m4/degrees.m4"
to switch to degree mode if needed
- removed line "$(MAKE) -C primes clean" because unnecessary;
function is performed by the previous "make distclean" line
* debian/.pc
- old directory that shouldn't be there, removed, thanks to
the latest Lintian
* debian/copyright
- removed some redundant "Copyright:" statements, thanks to
the latest Lintian
