Description (last modified by burcin)

Reported by Francois Maltey on sage-devel:

> log(x).operator() == ln # is True, yes the alias ln is better than
> the log name
> log(x).operator() == log # is False (this feature looks like the 
> binomial one)
> log(x).operator() == sage.function.log.function_log # is True

We should define a __call__() method in the Function_log class from sage/functions/, to handle the base argument. Then ln() and log() can be the same function and log(x).operator() == log will return True.

Just a minor comment: the "INPUT" description for log is now lost. Just by looking at *args, **kwds it is not possible to know what should be the order of the argument and the base of the log. Also, **kwds gives the impression that it can take in a lot of kwd arguments, whereas I think it takes only the keyword hold=True.

Also, my guess is that log? will no longer be very helpful. I haven't tried this, though.

@ppurka: log, like exp, never had an "INPUT" description; the hold parameter is introduced informally in both cases; please open a separate ticket.

@kcrisman: log? is fine, and identical to ln?

Reviewer's patch addresses this patchbot failure:

File "src/sage/ext/fast_callable.pyx", line 1524, in sage.ext.fast_callable._expression_binop_helper.get_builtin_functions

I hazard that this small change won't need another review, so I'll set positive.
