Help: pollead(x,{v}): leading coefficient of polynomial or series x, or x
itself if x is a scalar. Error otherwise. With respect to the main variable
of x if v is omitted, with respect to the variable v otherwise.
Description:
(pol):gen:copy leading_term($1)
(gen):gen pollead($1, -1)
(gen, var):gen pollead($1, $2)
Doc: leading coefficient of the polynomial or power series $x$. This is
computed with respect to the main variable of $x$ if $v$ is omitted, with
respect to the variable $v$ otherwise.
