Something that would improve a lot the PARI interface would be someone would implement a toy GP-like program (that would read input line and display the result, deal with error correctly, etc.) that would follow the _documented_ PARI interface. This would be distributed as an example of PARI program. This way interface problems would stand out. Cheers, Bill.
