Mathomatic version 16.0.5 Quick Reference Card
Command Usage Notes
approximate approximate [equation-number-ranges] "repeat approximate" approximates more, like calculate.
calculate calculate ["factor"] [equation-number-range] [variable iterations] "repeat calculate" repeatedly prompts for any input.
clear clear [equation-number-ranges] Tip: Use "clear all" to quickly restart Mathomatic.
code code ["c" or "java" or "python" or "integer"] [equation-number-ranges] Related commands: simplify, optimize, and variables
compare compare ["symbolic" "approx"] equation-number ["with" equation-number] This command may be preceded with "repeat" for full simplify.
copy copy ["select"] [equation-number-ranges] With select, the first copy is made the current equation.
derivative derivative ["nosimplify"] variable or "all" [order] Alternate name for this command: differentiate
display display ["factor"] ["simple" or "mixed"] [equation-number-ranges] Display expressions in pretty, 2D multi-line fraction format.
divide divide [base-variable] [dividend divisor] "repeat divide" repeatedly prompts for any input.
echo echo [text] This command may be preceded with "repeat".
edit edit [file-name] Editor name in EDITOR environment variable.
eliminate eliminate variables or "all" ["using" equation-number] This command may be preceded with "repeat".
extrema extrema [variable] [order] Helps with finding the minimums and maximums.
factor factor ["number" [integers]] or ["power"] [equation-number-range] [variables] Alternate name for this command: collect
for for variable start end [step-size] Same syntax as the sum and product commands.
fraction fraction ["numerator" "denominator"] [equation-number-range] This command may be preceded with "repeat".
help help [topics or command-names] Alternate name for this command: ?
imaginary imaginary [variable] Related command: real
integrate integrate ["constant" or "definite"] variable [order [lower and upper-bounds]] Alternate name for this command: integral
laplace laplace ["inverse"] variable This command only works with polynomials.
limit limit variable expression This limit command is experimental.
list list ["export" or "maxima" or "gnuplot" or "hex"] [equation-number-ranges] Options to export expressions to other math programs.
nintegrate nintegrate ["trapezoid"] variable [partitions [lower and upper-bounds]] This command cannot integrate over singularities.
optimize optimize [equation-number-range] Split up equations into smaller, more efficient equations.
pause pause [text] Display a line of text and wait for user to press the Enter key.
plot plot [equation-number-ranges] [xyz-ranges] [gnuplot-expressions,] Plots variable x; if expression contains y, do a 3D surface plot.
product product variable start end [step-size] Related command: sum
push push [equation-number-ranges or text-to-push] Available only if readline is enabled.
quit quit [exit-value] Alternate name for this command: exit
read read [file-name or directory] "repeat read" will read in a file repeatedly until failure.
real real [variable] Related command: imaginary
replace replace [variables ["with" expression]] This command may be preceded with "repeat".
roots roots root real-part imaginary-part "repeat roots" repeatedly prompts for any input.
save save file-name Related command: read
set set [["no"] option [value]] ... "set" by itself will show all current option settings.
simplify simplify ["sign" "symbolic" "quick[est]" "fraction"] [equation-number-ranges] This command may be preceded with "repeat" for full simplify.
solve solve ["verify" or "verifiable"] [equation-number-range] ["for"] expression The verify options check all returned solutions for correctness.
sum sum variable start end [step-size] Related command: product
tally tally ["average"] [equation-number-ranges] Add entries, specified and prompted for, showing total.
taylor taylor ["nosimplify"] variable order point Compute the Taylor series expansion of the current expression.
unfactor unfactor ["count" "fraction" "quick" "power"] [equation-number-range] Alternate name for this command: expand
variables variables ["c" "java" "integer" "count"] [equation-number-ranges] Related command: code
version version ["status"] Display Mathomatic version, status, and compiler information.

Anything enclosed by straight brackets [like this] means it is optional and may be omitted.
