iostream.o and How to Install It?
Short description: GAP computer algebra system, compiler and development files
First things first, you will need access to a server or computer running CentOS 8. This guide was written specifically with a server running CentOS 8 in mind, although it should also work on older, supported versions of the operating system.
Also, make sure you are running a regular, non-root user with sudo privileges configured on your server. When you have an account available, log in as your non-root user to begin.

Extra info and code examples
GAP is a system for computational discrete algebra, with particular emphasis on Computational Group Theory. GAP provides a programming language, a library of thousands of functions implementing algebraic algorithms written in the GAP language as well as large data libraries of algebraic objects. GAP is used in research and teaching for studying groups and their representations, rings, vector spaces, algebras, combinatorial structures, and more. This package contains the GAP compiler and the headers files and objects files necessary to build GAP packages. The GAP compiler (GAC) creates C code from GAP code and then calls the system's C compiler to produce machine code from it. This can result in a speedup.
You now have a full guide on how to install
yum package managers.
Also, we showed how to update manually as a single package and different ways to uninstall
the iostream.o from CentOS 8.
