This seems to work well, but I do not know enough C++ to review, unfortunately. Partial positive review?

  • Keywords symbolic print added
  • Reviewers set to Karl-Dieter Crisman, Ross Kyprianou
  • Status changed from needs_review to positive_review

Im also not qualified to review the C++ code but the (representative) examples below indicate the code satisfies the objectives so Im giving it a positive review (which someone can reverse if they discover a counterexample)

# Note: division is left associative: 12/3/4 = (12/3)/4
sage: 12/3/4 

sage: var('x y z')
(x, y, z)

sage: 2/(x+1) # the motivating example
2/(x + 1)

sage: 1/(2*y)

sage: 1/(1/2*y)

sage: x/2/y

sage: .5*x/y

sage: .5/x/y

sage: 1/2/x/y

sage: 1/x/2
