[Axiom-developer] patch to tex.spad.pamphlet

From: Bill Page
Subject: [Axiom-developer] patch to tex.spad.pamphlet
Date: 28 Sep 2003 21:04:03 -0400


The following patch to src/algebra/tex.spad.pamphlet
generates \sqrt[n]{x} instead of \root{n} \of {x}.
This form is converted properly by texmacs and corrects
the problem with the display of


that you mentioned in a previous email. Since TEX is
in layer15 of the algebra Makefile, re-building Axiom
doesn't take very long and you can simply patch
tex.spad.pamphlet and re-run make from your AXIOM root
