This
version of CLIFFORD and its supplementary packages is dedicated
to Hermann Günther Grassmann (18091877), mathematician,
physicist
and linguist on the 125th anniversary of his death on 26
September
1877 in Stettin, Germany (now Szczecin, Poland). He was coinvertor of
vector calculus and author of many papers on ndimensional geometry,
linear
algebra, acoustics, and optics. Hermann
Grassmann (18091877) from Wikipedia

If you have any problems with
installation
under Linux/Unix, please contact Dr. Bertfried Fauser at
Bertfried.Fauser@unikonstanz.de,
or fauser@spock.physik.unikonstanz.de.
When the package is loaded, you should see a list with names of
available
procedures. If the package has not loaded and you get an error message
make sure that files maple.hdb, maple.lib, and maple.ind
extracted from library_M6.zip
are all located in the directory such as C:\Maple6\Cliffordlib
and
that the path to that directory is included in maple.ini file.
To
see if maple.ini has been executed, type
>libname;
and Maple should respond with
"C:\\Maple6/Cliffordlib", "C:\\Maple6/lib"
if maple.ini had this line:
libname:="C:\\Maple6/Cliffordlib",libname:
