ideal(MonomialIdeal) -- converts a monomial ideal to an ideal

Synopsis

Description

i1 : R = QQ[x,y,z];
i2 : I = monomialIdeal(x*y^2, x^2*z, y^2*z)

                       2   2    2
o2 = monomialIdeal (x*y , x z, y z)

o2 : MonomialIdeal of R
i3 : ideal I

               2   2    2
o3 = ideal (x*y , x z, y z)

o3 : Ideal of R

Most operations between ideals and monomial ideals automatically perform the necessary conversions, so one rarely needs to apply the function ideal to a monomial ideal.
