5.0 Interactive LanguageΒΆ

In this chapter we look at some of the basic components of the FriCAS language that you can use interactively. We show how to create a block of expressions, how to form loops and list iterations, how to modify the sequential evaluation of a block and how to use if-then-else to evaluate parts of your program conditionally. We suggest you first read the boxed material in each section and then proceed to a more thorough reading of the chapter.
