Description (last modified by )
Also change the command line argument from r (run in interactive mode) to batchstring (run in batch mode), which is what we want here. The only reason it worked before was a bug in maxima that made r behave like batch mode [1]. This is fixed in 5.42, so using r now makes the maxima interface hang waiting for input.
batchstring also echoes the input, so we need to remove one more line before processing the output.

No progress concerning the patch set. That's a bit annoying.

I am getting
sage t long /usr/lib64/python2.7/sitepackages/sage/symbolic/integration/integral.py ********************************************************************** File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/sitepackages/sage/symbolic/integration/integral.py", line 728, in sage.symbolic.integration.integral.integrate Failed example: integrate(f, x, 0, 2*pi) # long time (4s on sage.math, 2012) Expected: integrate(abs(sin(x)), x, 0, 2*pi) Got: 0 **********************************************************************

Which is wrong of course.

And now that I look at the code in that area I see this is #10914 coming back.
We will not get an evaluated answer here, which is better than the previous (wrong) answer of zero. See :trac:`10914`:: sage: f = abs(sin(x)) sage: integrate(f, x, 0, 2*pi) # long time (4s on sage.math, 2012) integrate(abs(sin(x)), x, 0, 2*pi)

Weird, since maxima does give the right answer now

comment:13 Changed 20 months ago by
Since I was looking from the sageongentoo perspective there is always the possibility that the maxima maintainer reintroduced a bug (doubtful but possible).
comment:14 Changed 20 months ago by
FWIW this is the commit that breaks it
https://sourceforge.net/p/maxima/code/ci/801a0bb782fd09b9907a599541e1bff622ea453d
I can't decrypt what it means though, or why it breaks this test in sage but not in maxima itself.

Regarding integrals of abs(sin(x)) and related, see
To explore anything to do with Maxima, it's important to remember
that Sage starts Maxima by setting some defaults including domain : complex
and loading some packages including abs_integrate
, leading to differences
with running Maxima on its own.
See lines 171 to 173 in src/sage/interfaces/maxima_lib.py
init_code = ['besselexpand : true', 'display2d : false', 'domain : complex', 'keepfloat : true', 'load(to_poly_solve)', 'load(simplify_sum)', 'load(abs_integrate)', 'load(diag)']
Bugs in Maxima can be discussed on the maximadiscuss mailing list, always recalling these specifics of running Maxima in Sage.
comment:16 Changed 18 months ago by
Ah indeed, after 'load(abs_integrate)' I can reproduce the issue in maxima
(%i2) load(abs_integrate); (%o2) /usr/share/maxima/5.42.1/share/contrib/integration/abs_integrate.mac (%i3) integrate(abs(sin(x)),x,0,2*%pi); (%o3) 0

Also for reference, see #12731 and/or the wiki part about abs_integrate problems.

Adding #12731 as a dependency, since it seems unlikely this will get any attention upstream.
