Outchar

-- Option variable: outchar Default value: %o

outchar is the prefix of the labels of expressions computed by Maxima. Maxima automatically constructs a label for each computed expression by concatenating outchar and linenum.

outchar: "output";
 expand ((a+b)^3);

outchar may be assigned any string or symbol, not necessarily a single character. Because Maxima internally takes into account only the first char of the prefix, the prefixes inchar, outchar, and linechar should have a different first char. Otherwise some commands like kill(inlables) do not work as expected.

          (%i1) outchar: "output";
          (output1)                           output
          (%i2) expand ((a+b)^3);
                                      3        2      2      3
          (output2)                  b  + 3 a b  + 3 a  b + a
          (%i3)
