**DESCRIPTION**

giacis an advanced symbolic and numeric calculator. The console interface is namedicasor equivalentlygiac. The corresponding GUI program is calledxcas. These programs have extensive documentation. TheGIAC/XCASmanualis available in Info format by invoking `info giac`, and in HTML and DVI format in/usr/share/giac/doc. One can also obtain some help about a keyword like this, from inside the program: 0>> ?gcd Returns the greatest common divisor of 2 polynomials of several variables or of 2 integers or of 2 rationals. (Intg(a) or Poly),(Intg(b) or Poly) gcd(45,75); gcd(15/7,50/9); gcd(x^2-2*x+1,x^3-1); gcd(t^2-2*t+1,t^2+t-2); gcd((x^2-1)*(y^2-1)*z^2,x^3*y^3*z+(-(y^3))*z+x^3*z-z) lcm,euler,modgcd,ezgcd,psrgcd,heugcd,Gcd The equivalent output may be retrieved by invoking (e.g.) `cas_help gcd`.
