Andrej, thank you very much for the explanation. The origin of the
problem could be in my bad English, but from the documentation of
radcan on http://maxima.sourceforge.net/docs/manual/en/maxima_7.html#Item_003a-radcan
I had (and still have) strong feeling, thet radexpand is related to
radcan.

I searched the history of this maillist and the same problem has been
discussed here:

radcan vs radexpand and documentation. Based on this thread, I guess
that more users can be confused with the manual entry for radcan.

Thank you again for clarification.
