[Om] getting started with openMath

My apologies. I think I did not say that very well. I would only use 
openMath to encode the equation or formula part of the command to the 
CAS. So I would use it as a standard for encoding mathematical objects, 
but not for use internal to any part of my application. At the same time 
it would not be the entire command language to access the CAS.

For example I might have a function like this:

char * solveFor(char* openMathEquation, char* variable )
// take openMathEquation and put it into the format expected by CAS
// set up command for CAS
// send command to CAS
// get result form CAS and turn into a openMath string
// return the openMath string

My project is more about the interface so maybe I should choose one CAS 
and not abstract its interface and that would save me all the trouble of 
using openMath.


PS If someone wants to give input on the design or goals of my 
calculator (other then the openMath part), send me an email, and I will 
let you know a little more details on what I am trying to do.
