How do you show each step that Mathematica uses on the functions Solve
or Expand without using the Trace function as shown below? Is there a
free package available?

(*SolveStep is being used just as an example function even though it
does not exist*)

SolveStep[a x^2+b x+c==0,x];

(*Would output something like the derivation of the quadratic formula*)
