I have just found sci.math.symbolic so this may be a well known question for this news group. I am interested in obtaining a PD software package to do symbolic manipulations. Solving simultaneous equations is my main goal but anything smaller (multiplication, addition, etc.) will give me something to work on. I am hoping to get sources in C for SUN's but other platforms are acceptable. As far as the language, I am hoping to be able to stick to C or some other common language. Short of finding sources, does anyone have any good suggestions for a good language to write something of this sort in. The types of equations I will be solving will be known in advance so there is not a need for "solve all" software. In other words, if bugs exist in the software, I can work around them. BTW I know of Mathematica and Maple but I do not want to depend on having these around in future years. Any suggestions welcome.
