21437,Proper initialisation for the optional MeatAxe library,SimonKing,,"Modules using the optional !MeatAxe package need the following initialisation:
- !MeatAxe executables rely on an environment variable declaring where to find multiplication tables. Of course, this needs to be done only once.
- Each module that links against the !MeatAxe library, which is a static library, has to define a certain C variable, which serves the same purpose as the aforementioned environment variable.
I suggest to add here a function that does the initialisation and must be called be each module using !MeatAxe functions. For that purpose, a new module `sage.libs.meataxe` is created.",defect,closed,major,sage-7.6,packages: optional,fixed,"MeatAxe, matrix backend",,,Simon King,Jeroen Demeyer,N/A,,3401f04ebf9f89700b24930967e9af8033c24263,3401f04ebf9f89700b24930967e9af8033c24263,#23411 #23352,
