Re: converting a multivariate series to a polynomial

Dear Bill,

Thank you for a neat solution!

As a side note, can you please elaborate on the "you should use truncate" suggestion?
PARI documentation says 
"Pol(t,{v='x}): convert t (usually a vector or a power series) into a polynomial..."
and thus it implies that Pol() is usually used for converting power series into a polynomial. If that is bad for some reason, it should be reflected in the documentation.

Normally, you should use truncate.

You can try
