it looks as though I missed something.

I remember that you got the software via ftp last time.

Do you prefer the 64 bit version for AMD64 / Intel EMT
or the traditional 32 bit version for Linux?



Tony Hearn,

You will recall I am sure, that a little more than a year
ago, with your kind approval I installed Reduce on the
axiom-developer server. The axiom-developer server runs
the wiki-based web application that I call MathAction which
provides a web-based interface for both Axiom and Reduce.

Here is an updated URL for the web site:

I have been reviewing my notes about Reduce on MathAction
and I see that the version we are running is the older
version 3.7. Perhaps through an oversight I apparently did
not receive the updated Reduce version 3.8 package that I
discussed with Winfried Neun. Would it be possible for me
to obtain the newer version for linux to install on the
axiom-developer server?

I am especially interested in installing version 3.8 because
of it's support for OpenMath. Recently I have become motivated
again to look at OpenMath and MathML support in both Axiom
and Reduce.

Kind Regards,
Bill Page.

You have got REDUCE 3.7. It might be useful to use a more recent
patches file, but I think I will be able to distribute REDUCE 3.8
for Linux this month, perhaps you just wait for it.

When I start Reduce I see:

Loading image file :/usr/local/reduce/lisp/psl/linux/red/reduce.img
REDUCE 3.7, 15-Apr-1999, patched to 14-Jun-2001 ...

So I guess what Winfried gave me was really Reduce 3.7?

You should work with Winfried on the MathML stuff --- he 
wrote the code (but he may be on vacation now --- it's
August, after all).

As far as the version is concerned, there should be a banner 
when you run it that tells you the version.  Otherwise, you
can say
  lisp version!*;

in REDUCE and it will tell you.

I would like to know your opinion regarding the possibility of 
including a web-based interface to REDUCE in our system. Would
the licensing conditions permit this?
Even though there is a (relatively) modest fee charged for 
the distribution of REDUCE, it is "open source" in the sense 
that all sources are distributed with the so-called 
professional version.  So I would certainly encourage you to 
develop such an interface --- there are no licensing 
restrictions affecting this (assuming you don't include a 
copy of REDUCE with your code!)

Winfried Neun <address@hidden> is the one who developed the 
MathML interface, and he would be happy to work further with 
you on your interface, as would I.  For starters, you 
probably need a copy of the software.  Please tell Winfried 
what platform you use, and he'll supply the appropriate version.

When things are working, we could put the code on the REDUCE 
web site, or put a pointer there to wherever you have things stored.
