Because I'm not aware of the codes and errors. Especially I don't understand the error code. It is quite different form GCC or something. Even I read the error report, I can't figure out exactly what the problem is. So I'm thinking of moving to mathematica or something. But I wonder if it worth is to learn the sage more. Even I hate the maxima in integrations. Could you please tell me what benefit the sage has? Or if I should use ROOT, then would it be better just move to the ROOT? In principle, the ROOT is data analysis package. But people say that they can replace mathematica as the SW. If it is possible. I would move.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/26343/comparison-between-root-mathematica-and-sage/?comment=26345#post-id-26345I don't know what ROOT is. But I would say that there is a learning curve to using *any* software, and Sage is no different from that. I have a fair amount of experience teaching people to use it, and because it is based on Python, I think it is a good language for beginners in many ways. But Python (by design) does throw exceptions more often than return nothing. Perhaps if you provide some more specific examples of the kinds of errors you are encountering that would help us help you more!Thu, 26 Mar 2015 11:31:48 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/26343/comparison-between-root-mathematica-and-sage/?comment=26345#post-id-26345
