number theory oriented calculation system
NZMATH is a Python based number theory oriented calculation system. The centre of development in origin is Tokyo Metropolitan University. Today it is developed at SourceForge.net.
This version 1.1.0 contains several new features, bug fixes. The API can still be changed with versions.
To install NZMATH on your computer, you must have Python 2.5 or better. If you don’t have a copy of Python, please install it first. Python is available from http://www.python.org/ .
The next step is to expand the NZMATH-1.1.0.tar.gz. The way to do it depends on your operating system. On the systems with recent GNU tar, you can do it with a single command:
% tar xf NZMATH-1.1.0.tar.gz
where, % is the command line prompt. Or with standard tar, you can do it as:
% gzip -cd NZMATH-1.1.0.tar.gz | tar xf -
Then, you have a child directory named NZMATH-1.1.0.
The third step is the last step, to install NZMATH to the standard python path. Usually, this means to write files to somewhere under /usr/lib or /usr/local/lib, and thus you have to have appropriate write permission. Typically, do as the following:
% cd NZMATH-1.1.0 % su # python setup.py install
NZMATH is provided as a Python library package named ‘nzmath’, so please use it as a usual package. For more information please refer Tutorial.
