# Where is the source code ?

Hello all,

I am using SageMath-7.5.1 on a Linux platform. Sometimes I am interested in the source code for studying implementation details. When asking for documentation or source code, e.g.

R.<x>=GF(61)[] ; p=x^3 + x^2 + 59*x + 60 ; p?

then the documentation may contain a line like:

~/.sage/temp/WJ1/6067/spyx/sage/rings/polynomial/polynomial_zmod/sage/rings/polynomial/polynomial_zmod_flint.pyx

But directory "~/.sage/temp/WJ1/6067" is empty! Neither does the SageMath installation directory "/usr/lib/sagemath" (recursively searched) contain a file "polynomial_zmod*.py*". So, where is the source code?

Thanks in advance

In my case, after starting sage in a linux console, the path is correctly detected:

That's so in your case, not in mine.
