Why that's a terrific idea =)
The package is gap, which was orphaned a while ago and I ITA. The package
gap is a system for computational discrete algebra with particular
emphasis on computational group theory, but which has already proved
useful also in other areas. In the example text, gap is used to
analyse Rubik's Cube using group theory. A kernel, which makes
use of readline, implements a pascal-like language. Many libraries
and data bases are included. A thorough html manual is included.
At least, that's the old description, I'm going to change it a bit, and
split out the manuals in other packages. (gap-doc-dvi, gap-doc-pdf,
gap-doc-html), and I've packaged a newer upstream version than the current
gap package, which is frankly oooold.
So, there you have it. The reason I picked this package is that I think
it's an extremely cool program, and I'm a math nerd, my minor is in maths,
focusing in algebra, so...
