for ma review of macsyma in "computer is physics" [the new sept.-oct. 1996

Macsyma's pattern matching is not as powerful as Mathematica's but it is
significantly better than Maple's. Pattern matching can be a convenient
way to program, even if not the most efficient. When speed of execution is
not an issue, the user should have access to good pattern matching in
order to write code with the least effort"
