of a variable that I defined in wxMaxima previously:
:lisp $a -> 1 /* This works ok. */
(+ 1 2) -> 3 /* Here I am in the Lisp session. */
$a -> "debugger invoked.: The variable A is unbound." The program hangs up.
(doing the same from the console, I get the answer "1".)
When I look at the xml-editor, it tells me that "a" was sent to Maxima. But it should be "$a", shouldn't it? Getting
only "a", Maxima's response would be understandable.
Another try was to input "$$a". But again I get the same error message: variable A unbound. And the xml-editor again
tells me that what was sent to Maxima was "a". So my guess is that the $-sign is somehow lost in wxMaxima.
I checked that in my wxMaxima settings I have correctly set my installer's Maxima 5.40.
