[Axiom-developer] maxima and axiom

Maxima and Axiom can work together usefully. One interesting idea
is that since maxima is common lisp and axiom is also common lisp
we could run them both in the same image. In axiom you can execute
lisp commands with
  )lisp (yourlispfn args)

Suppose we load maxima into an axiom image. We could then type:

  )lisp (maxima)

and be in maxima. Why bother? Well, if we could get the two systems
to talk it might be useful to use one system to check the results of
the other system automatically. And since Axiom is really just lisp
then Maxima could use Axiom code and vice-versa. It would take some
engineering but that's just the easy part :-)
