# qepcad failing to replicate examples

I was attempting to replicate the examples seen here (http://www.sagemath.org/doc/reference...), but I keep getting errors.

Given ︠482004e5-daf3-4312-b5d7-a61b41d210a4s︠ var('a,b,c,d,x,y,z') qf = qepcad_formula;

ellipse = 3*x^2 + 2*x*y + y^2 - x + y - 7
F = qf.exists(y, ellipse == 0); F
qepcad(F)

Seems cut-and paste went slightly wrong. To display lines of code, select them and click the 'code' button (the one with '010 101'). Try editing your question and doing that.

Can we mark this question as outdated? qepcad installs just fine, and I can think of no reason why anyone would want to read it now.
