var('R, t')
integral(((1/(R*t))*exp(i*R*t)), t)
it returns this: (essentially)
(Ei(iRt))/R
But the two i's should just multiply out and the two R's simplify to 1.
And what's 'E'?
I realize the integral is divergent, and the indefinite serves my purposes, but I'm not quite sure what
Also, if anyone could point me to a thread on how to attach those nifty screenshot-like html images of a sage session (like those used in error reports, i have no idea what the right word is) into a text box like this, that would be be appreciated.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9841/integral-interpretation/?answer=14589#post-id-14589Sage gives you the correct answer. You can check it for example in wolframalpha.
Ei
is the exponential integral (and not a product).
To obtain a better formatted code you can copy-paste your code,
mark it and use the 101... icon. Sat, 23 Feb 2013 20:48:41 -0600http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9841/integral-interpretation/?answer=14589#post-id-14589
