NAME

       GAP - Groups, Algorithms and Programming

DESCRIPTION

       GAP   is  a  system  for  computational  discrete  algebra  with  particular  emphasis  on
       computational group theory, but which has already proved useful also in  other  areas.  In
       the  example  text,  gap  is  used  to  analyse  Rubik's Cube using group theory. A kernel
       implements a pascal-like language.

OPTIONS

       usage: gap [OPTIONS] [FILES]

              run the Groups, Algorithms and Programming system, Version 4.4.8

       -h     print this help and exit

       -b     disable/enable the banner

       -q     enable/disable quiet mode

       -e     disable/enable quitting on <ctr>-D

       -f     force line editing

       -n     prevent line editing

       -x <num>
              set line width

       -y <num>
              set number of lines

       -g     show GASMAN messages (full garbage collections)

       -g -g  show GASMAN messages (all garbage collections)

       -m <mem>
              set the initial workspace size

       -o <mem>
              set hint for maximal workspace size (GAP may allocate more)

       -K <mem>
              set maximal workspace size (GAP never allocates more)

       -c <mem>
              set the cache size value

       -a <mem>
              set amount to  pre-malloc-ate  postfix  'k'  =  *1024,  'm'  =  *1024*1024,  'g'  =
              *1024*1024*1024

       -l <paths>
              set the GAP root paths

       -r     disable/enable reading of the '.gaprc' file

       -A     disable/enable autoloading of GAP packages

       -B <name>
              current architecture

       -D     enable/disable debugging the loading of library files

       -M     disable/enable loading of compiled modules

       -N     disable/enable check for completion files

       -T     disable/enable break loop

       -X     enable/disable CRC for comp. files while reading

       -Y     enable/disable CRC for comp. files while completing

       -i <file>
              change the name of the init file

       -L <file>
              restore a saved workspace

       -R     prevent restoring of workspace (ignoring -L)

              Boolean options (b,q,e,r,A,D,M,N,T,X,Y) toggle the current value each time they are
              called. Default actions are indicated first.
