Description (last modified by )
Reported by Francois Maltey on sagedevel:
> 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/log.py
, to handle the base argument. Then ln()
and log()
can be the same function and log(x).operator() == log
will return 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:

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

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 keywordhold=True
.
