Warning: this entry need a more profound looking into all directories and sub-directories the project is very big it could take some time.

GAP is a system for computational discrete algebra, with particular emphasis on Computat ional Group Theory. GAP provides a programming language, a library of thousands of functions implementing algebraic algorithms written in the GAP language as well as large data libraries of algebraic objects. GAP is used in research and teaching for studying groups and their representations, rings, vector spaces, algebras, combinatorial structures, and more. The system, including source, is distributed freely. You can study and easily modify or extend it for your special use.
