I need to run some program in GAP and use the output in another program in Sage.

I tried running gap_console() and then running "a := 1;" in GAP.

After exiting that console and going gack to Sage, my calculations were lost.

When I asked the value of "a" in Sage, I got:

NameError: name "a" is not defined.

Is there any command in Sage to solve this problem?

To use GAP within Sage and reuse its results in the Sage session, use libgap.


sage: a = libgap(1)
sage: a
sage: parent(a)
C library interface to GAP
