There are a lot of keywords people are missing out on.

This patch at least begins to fix this issue. It just copies the most obvious examples. But I think it will help a lot.

Improvements welcome! Otherwise, please review.

When applying the patch to my version 4.7, I received the error:

applying /home/travis/.sage/temp/euler.math.mc/4600/tmp_0.patch

Hunk #1 succeeded at 7365 with fuzz 2 (offset -44 lines).

Also, what was left over had some odd spacing issues when checking x.solve?

  • Status changed from needs_review to needs_work
  • Work issues set to fix whitespace issues

This patch is based on 4.7.1.alpha2.

However, I see in the patch preview that for some reason there is extra whitespace, so I'll have to take care of that sometime. For now, needs work for that reason.

Wow, I guess we let time forget this. Surprisingly, it still applies in the important place, and the stuff that doesn't apply is no longer needed.

Updated patch coming up.

Looks really good. Thanks for taking care of this. I spotted two very small typos, a reviewer patch is attached. I'll set to positive review once I've checked out the html documentation, but everything looks good from the terminal!
