#### Expop

-- Option variable: expop Default value: 0

`expop` is the highest positive exponent which is automatically expanded. Thus `(x + 1)^3`, when typed, will be automatically expanded only if `expop` is greater than or equal to 3. If it is desired to have `(x + 1)^n` expanded where `n` is greater than `expop` then executing `expand ((x + 1)^n)` will work only if `maxposex` is not less than n.
