## NC.CoCoALToC

Convert a polynomial in a non-commutative polynomial ring from the CoCoAL format to the C format.

### Syntax

NC.CoCoALToC(F:LIST):INT

### Description

Please set non-commutative polynomial ring (via the command Use) before calling this function. For more information, please check the relevant commands and functions.

@param

*F*: a non-commutative polynomial in the CoCoAL format. Each polynomial is represented as a LIST of LISTs, and each element in every inner LIST involves only one indeterminate or none (a constant). For example, the polynomial`f=2x[2]y[1]x[2]^2-9y[2]x[1]^2x[2]^3+5`is represented as F:=[[2x[1],y[1],x[2]^2], [-9y[2],x[1]^2,x[2]^3], [5]]. The zero polynomial`0`is represented as the empty LIST [].@return: a LIST, which is the C format of the polynomial F.

#### Example

NC.SetX(<quotes>abc</quotes>); F:=[[1,<quotes>ab</quotes>],[2,<quotes>aa</quotes>],[3,<quotes>bb</quotes>],[4,<quotes>bab</quotes>]]; NC.Deg(F); 3 ------------------------------- NC.Deg([]); -- 0 polynomial 0 -------------------------------
