Is there a way to access GAP's in function through Sage's C Interface to GAP?

gap> Identity(G) in G;


I was wondering how to call this from Sage:

sage: G = libgap.SymmetricGroup(5)
sage: g = libgap.eval('(1,2,3)(4,5)')

How do I test if g is in G?

What is G?

\in is membership test. Another form of calling it would be \in( Identity(G), G );. It does not matter in this example what is G, but if you need something for the test, try e.g.\in((1,2),SymmetricGroup(3));.

Edited to clarify that I wanted to call this from Sage.

This might be what you want

sage: G = libgap.SymmetricGroup(5)
sage: g = libgap.eval('(1,2,3)(4,5)')
sage: getattr(g, '\\in')(G)
sage: g = libgap.eval('(1,2,3)(4,5,6)')
sage: getattr(g, '\\in')(G)
