LibPoly is a C library for manipulating polynomials. The target applications are symbolic reasoning engines, such as SMT solvers, that need to reason about polynomial constraints. It is research software under development, so the features and the API might change rapidly.
To compile on an Ubuntu machine you can install the prerequisites with
sudo apt-get install gcc cmake make libgmp-dev python2.7-dev python-sympy
Python is used for testing the library through the Python bindings (these are also useful for playing with the library). The Python bindings are currently not supported for Macs or Windows machines.
To compile and install perform
cd build cmake .. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=$type -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$prefix make make install
The $type above is should be either "Debug" or "Release", and $prefix is the
target directory where the library will be installed. The prefix can be
omitted, in which case the library will be installed in the default system
location (such as
If the tests are enabled, you can do a sanity check of the library by doing a
