Logabs

-- Option variable: logabs Default value: false

When doing indefinite integration where logs are generated, e.g. integrate(1/x,x), the answer is given in terms of log(abs(...)) if logabs is true, but in terms of log(...) if logabs is false. For definite integration, the logabs:true setting is used, because here "evaluation" of the indefinite integral at the endpoints is often needed.
