- Plenty of discussion on axiom-developer, but no concensus yet, I'm
- afraid. Here are some of the related threads:
- [Indefinite Types]
The idea that one should be able to "declare the type" of a
variable in Axiom is a frequent expectation of new users of Axiom.
For example, if we know that 'x' and 'y' are Integers than surely
the symbolic expression 'x+y' must represent an Integer? But this
is not (quite) what is meant by type in Axiom.
