first I should explain what I want to do: I implemented an algorithm to
calculate the jacobian symbol for polynomials. Till now I define two
polynomials and after that I start the algorithm. This gives the desired
result, but I`d like to have a function, say jacPol, which gets the 2
polynomials and returns the result. I tried to define a function with
jacPol[a_,b_]:= where a and b are polynomials, but this does not give the
desired result. I get an error message or jacPol is not evaluated at all.
So perhaps a experienced mathematica user could have a look at the notebook,
which can be found here:

Thank you in advance
