Hi!
 a subclass of the GAP interpreter for backwards compatibility with GAP3 which just has the one difference in
function_call()
,
There already is a separate class for GAP3 which inherits from Gap_generic
. The cleanest solution IMO would be to have a method _identical_function
in Gap_generic
(parallel to _equality_symbol
etc.), say:
def _identical_function(self): return "IsIdenticalObj"
and then have it overridden in Gap3
.

Good; let us use that.

_identical_function
inGap_generic
(parallel to_equality_symbol
etc.), say:def _identical_function(self): return "IsIdenticalObj"and then have it overridden in

.
I think it should be a classlevel attribute instead of a method because it speed cost and a method is IMO somewhat overkill (because no work is done).
Anne, can you check to see if this works?

With this branch applied, I still get an error

Whoops. I put it in the wrong place. Try it now.

Yes, now it works!

 Resolution set to fixed
 Status changed from positive_review to closed
So GAP3 has
IsIdentical
, which was changed toIsIdenticalObj
in GAP4b3. I think what we need to do is either:function_call()
,__init__
and set some private attribute which gets used infunction_call()
, orif
statement infunction_call()
.@aschilling For now you should be able to make that one line change mentioned above to
sage.interfaces.gap.function_call
(but I haven't tested it).
