Hello,
could smb point me how to access the formula parse tree.
what I really want, is to make derivative exercise tool.
which would do the differentiation of (complex) formulas step by step.
And I want to use python :)
for example Maple has it

I'd like to have parse-tree structure, based on differentiation by
variable (x) ,
each next depth level would mean a step according to
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chain_rule
so terminal/final nodes should have 'x' or plain numeric expression,
and pre-terminal nodes should have simple differentiatable functions
a subset of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Table_of_derivatives,
which contain x and numeric values/variables
I found sth similar what I want in java..

I also asked in SAGE forum, but seems they don't deal with expression
parsing

SAGE folks referenced Maxima.. but I want python, and as I know Axiom is
made with python (Maxima probably with C)..
Thanks in advance
