Using Pure with Reduce

Reduce is one of the oldest computer algebra systems which has been around since the 1960s and is widely recognized as a state-of-the-art, powerful and efficient CAS. It is free/open source software distributed under a BSD-style license, actively maintained on its SourceForge website, and implementations exist for all major computing platforms.

The pure-reduce module embeds Reduce in Pure, so that the functionality of Reduce becomes available in Pure in a seamless way. More background information and a discussion of the interface can be found in the Embedding REDUCE thread on the Pure mailing list.

Reduce can be used conveniently along with Pure's Octave module in the TeXmacs environment. In particular, the Reduce module also provides the math output capabilities for Pure's TeXmacs plugin.
