Abstract A routine has been developed which computes and prints out the symbolic derivative of an absolutely continuous elementary function of one or several variables. No use is made of list processing languages. The chain rule is applied and the result is edited to produce results as elegant and efficient as those obtained by hand computation. A subset may be imbedded in a formula translator to introduce a differentiation operator into an “algebraic” programming language.
