Build Status Code Coverage

The Example package

This package serves as an example of how to create a GAP 4 package.

The Example package uses an external binary and therefore a complete installation only works on UNIX systems or systems that support a UNIX-like environment, e.g. OS X, or Windows with Cygwin. However, a partial installation without the external binary is possible on any system.

To compile the package, change to the /pkg/example-* directory of your GAP installation and then call

./configure <path>

where is a path to the main GAP root directory; so normally you would call

./configure ../..

(the ../.. is the default and so may be omitted) and then call

make 

to compile the binary.

Now start GAP and type

LoadPackage("example");

to load the package. You will see the package banner. If you have not compiled the external binary, you should receive a warning.

For details on how to use the Example package see the package documentation in the doc subdirectory (view its HTML version or manual.pdf via a PDF viewer). You will find additional information on how to create a GAP package in the Appendix of the manual.
