This tarball contains the binary versions of Axiom (April 2006) and
Aldor (1.0.2) as currently installed on the MathAction (Axiom Wiki)
system. It should work on most Linux systems. It has been tested on
Debian Sarge and RedHat? 9.

version of Aldor is freely available. Please sign the Free Aldor
letter and visit http://www.aldor.org for information concerning the
Aldor license.

RPM Distributions
An experimental binary distribution of Axiom consisting of the following
RPM files was prepared from the current
Axiom on Debian distribution
using the alien program.
These files should work on most linux systems that support rpm
(such as
RedHat?, Fedora, Suse, Mandrake etc.). Download at least the first two rpm's
above and then install via:
# rpm -ihv axiom-20050901-3.i386.rpm axiom-databases-20050901-3.noarch.rpm
For missing dependencies consult the
Axiom on Debian page.
Since this distribution of Axiom is still experimental please report both
success or failure in the comment form at the bottom of this page.
We will update this list as new versions are compiled, tested and uploaded.
Please let us know if you have a request for a specific platform not mentioned
above. You may use the issues system to report problems.
These versions of Axiom do not provide typeset quality mathematical output
(such as available here), however they can be used with
the OldTeXmacs interface which allows Axiom commands and output to be included
in mathematical documents.
- Download the installer
program (use right-click / SaveAs in your browser.)
- Execute this program and specify the location where you would like to
install Axiom e.g.:
C:\Program Files\axiom
- The AXIOM variable will be automatically added to the environment. To
check it refer to
Start / Settings / Control Panel / System / Advanced / Environment Variables
Notice that this variable must use / not \
- The PATH is also update by the installed to permit Axiom to run from
the command line:
Start / Settings / Control Panel / System / Advanced / Environment Variables / Edit
Path ... ;C:\Program Files\axiom\mnt\windows\bin
The Path must use the \ character.
- A short-cut with an AXIOM icon is created on the desktop that points
to FRICASsys
- Start Axiom by double-clicking the AXIOM icon, from the Start menu
Start/Programs/Axiom/Axiom
or from the command window:
Start/Programs/Accessories/Command Prompt
FRICASsys
- The Axiom Book and a tutorial on using Axiom with OldTeXmacs is also available
from the Start menu
Start/Programs/Axiom
- Windows version 0.1.4 ( download faster use BitTorrent? ) Recommended Download
(49 Mb.) This version includes the additional C compiler (gcc) files needed
to )compile
spad library files. It also corrects some problems relating to
installation of Axiom in paths containing spaces. The Axiom algebra files
have been optimized using a fixedPoint iteration procedure which ensures
consistency of the generated code in the presence of cyclic dependencies
(mutual recursion). Optimizations include inline code generation for special
cases and greater use of type information.
All 1,800+ dvi files documenting the algebra and other parts of the system
have been converted to PDF format. The use of PDF is the main reason for the
increase in size. I would like to know the opinion of people who download this
file whether conversion to PDF is a good idea. Is it more convenient? Would you
prefer to save space and download time by omitting the files or is dvi format
acceptible to most Windows users?
- Windows version 0.1.3
(19 Mb.) This version corrects a bug which prevented the OldTeXmacs interface
from working when Axiom is installed in a non-default location. It also
includes improvements to the OldTeXmacs interface to allow the user or
installer to specify several options which controls how OldTeXmacs formats
Axiom output. For example it is possible to change the line width
(specified in inches)
)set output texmacs width 5.5
or to disable the interface line breaking algorithm completely.
)set output texmacs break off
This version also permits an unformatted output mode.
Easy windows installation program (courtesy of Dan Martens!).
The original windows version of Axiom was prepared by Mike Thomas.
