?? help hilighting bug |
I am not sure exactly if this is a bug, but it seems so to me. I am using GP/PARI CALCULATOR Version 2.0.17 (beta) i686 running linux (ix86 kernel) 32-bit version with a terminal emulator rxvt. When I use the advanced help : gp> ??fordiv fordiv(n,X,seq): the formal variable X ranging through the positive divisors of n, the sequence seq is evaluated. n must be of type integer. gp> The name of the function "fordiv" is in a red color and "seq" is underlined. So far so good. Now I try a similar thing with another function : gp> ??forstep forstep(X = a,b,s,seq): the formal variable X going from a to b, in increments of s, the seq is evaluated. Nothing is done if s > 0 and a > b or if s < 0 and a < b. s must be in R^* or a vector of steps [s_1,...,s_n]. In the latter case, the successive steps are used in the order they appear in s. ? forstep(x = 5, 20, [2,4], print(x)) 5 7 11 13 17 19 gp> Here the function name "forstep" again is in a red color and "seq" is also underlined. However, a few more strings are also in red. Namely the "R" and then the example code which is all in red. Finally, my "gp>" prompt becomes red and stays that way. This means that the "bold" attribute is not turned off or restored to its original status after the help message. Annoying.
