Name        : gap-pkg-browse
Product     : Fedora 24

Summary     : GAP browser for 2-dimensional arrays of data
Description :
The motivation for this package was to develop functions for an
interactive display of two-dimensional arrays of data, for example
character tables.  They should be displayed with labeled rows and
columns, the display should allow some markup for fonts or colors, it
should be possible to search for entries, to sort rows or columns, to
hide and unhide information, to bind commands to keys, and so on.

To achieve this our package now provides three levels of functionality,
where in particular the first level may also be used for completely
other types of applications:
- A low level interface to ncurses: This may be interesting for all
  kinds of applications which want to display text with some markup and
  colors, maybe in several windows, using the available capabilities of
  a terminal.
- A medium level interface to a generic function NCurses.BrowseGeneric:
  We introduce a new operation Browse which is meant as an interactive
  version of Display for GAP objects.  Then we provide a generic
  function for browsing two-dimensional arrays of data, handles labels
  for rows and columns, searching, sorting, binding keys to actions,
  etc.  This is for users who want to implement new methods for browsing
  two-dimensional data.
- Applications of these interfaces: We provide some applications of the
  ncurses interface and of the function NCurses.BrowseGeneric.  These
  may be interesting for end users, and also as examples for programmers
  of further applications.  This includes a method for browsing
  character tables, several games, and an interface for demos.

Update Information:

See http://gap-system.org/Manuals/doc/changes/chap2.html for the changes in this
major release of gap.  The tth package had some TeX font dependencies added,
since it can generate code that refers to those fonts.  The individual gap
packages are mostly rebuilds for gap 4.8, with a few new versions where upstream
had to make changes for compatibility with gap 4.8.
