E.2.3 Notes for developers

There has been an entensive process of refactoring, redesign and modularization of Singular to facilitate easier maintenance and future development:

  • Build System : automake, libfac has been integrated into Factory
  • Removed MP (Multi protocol) in favor of SSI links.
  • Separation/modularization into libraries and packages
  • For easy integration of new coeffcient rings, we defined a generic interface for coefficient rings and a supporting framework for making them accessible to the user.

    In particular we have separated everything related to coeffcient rings into a separate library libcoeffs. Dependency tree between restructured packages is show at http://www.singular.uni-kl.de/dox/singular.png

    In order to use libSingular as a C++ library, see libSingular.
