(I sent email to Mate, separately. head:?car(x*y) corrects the error.
The point I was making to Mate is that he/she could, for example, use
email, or asking questions on the maxima mailing list for questions not
of general interest, instead of posting to sci.math.symbolic, in the
future. Or perhaps making the questions more meaningful (and of more
general interest) by explaining why. Someone might even say, "Oh,
that's easy to do, why don't you use Mathematica etc.".
