Well, in principle there are infinitely many ways to obtain wrong
results by using wrong syntax, so it would take a lot of work to put
warning signs around all potential pitfalls.
But at least in your case it shouldn't be that difficult to catch
missing dots. So I added this to the development version
It is not a silver bullet and is very basic, but at least things like
TR[GA[a]GA[b]GA[c]GA[d]] or TR[GA[a,b]GA[c,d]] or TR[GA[a,b]GA[c]]
DiracTrace::noncom: Wrong syntax! The Dirac trace of xxx
contains Dirac matrices multiplied via Times (commutative
multiplication) instead of DOT (non-commutative multiplication).
Hope that helps.
