Installing shortcut scripts¶
install_scripts(directory)creates scripts in the given directory that run various software components included with Sage. Each of these scripts essentially just runs
CMDis also the name of the script:
‘gap’ runs GAP
‘gp’ runs the PARI/GP interpreter
‘hg’ runs Mercurial
‘ipython’ runs IPython
‘maxima’ runs Maxima
‘mwrank’ runs mwrank
‘R’ runs R
‘singular’ runs Singular
‘sqlite3’ runs SQLite version 3
‘kash’ runs Kash if it is installed
‘M2’ runs Macaulay2 if it is installed
verbosely tells you which scripts it adds, and
will not overwrite any scripts you already have in the given directory.
directory- string; the directory into which to put the scripts. This directory must exist and the user must have write and execute permissions.
ignore_existing- bool (optional, default False): if True, install script even if another version of the program is in your path.
OUTPUT: Verbosely prints what it is doing and creates files in
directorythat are world executable and readable.
You may need to run
rootin order to run
install_scriptssuccessfully, since the user running
sageneeds write permissions on
directory. Note that one good candidate for
'/usr/local/bin', so from the shell prompt, you could run
sudo sage -c "install_scripts('/usr/local/bin')"
install_scripts(directory)will be most helpful if
directoryis in your path.
