Frequently Asked Questions


Q: My gap command prompt has extra characters -- it looks like:
     [1mgap> 

A: You probably have ColorPrompt(true); in your .gaprc file. As a result, GAP is sending ANSI color codes, which work great at the terminal, but which CocoaGap cannot interpret.
To fix the problem temporarily, enter
     ColorPrompt(false);
at the GAP prompt.

To fix it permanently, remove the ColorPrompt(true); line from your .gaprc.
