RE: newRPL - build 1255 released! [updated to 1282]
I'd like to open a discussion here:

What would be a good syntax for ASSUME?

The way it used to be, the old CAS would store information in the current directory. Now that information is included within the symbolic expression (see the wiki on symbolic expressions). Now we need a "simple" syntax so the user can make all occurrences of a variable within an expression have the same assumptions (the 3-digit numeric code).
Something along the lines of:
Code:
'X^2+4' 6 'X' ASSUME

Which would make 'X' in the expression known to be a matrix (numeric code 6). But... is there a way to do it without forcing the user to remember those cryptic codes?
Right now the user can type the equation with the codes in it as subscripts, but I'd like to be able to change it after the fact.
I know, this would be ideal for the equation writer: just select the variable and a couple of check boxes appear where you select the type and be done, but that is "in planning stages" still.

What could be a good syntax instead of numeric code?
