I can't run it because I don't have XCAS; however \begin{TV} and \end{TV} should be on lines by themselves. – egreg Oct 13 '12 at 22:20
Which error message do you receive? "Does not work" is not very clear ... BTW: the description of package tablor is only in french. It would be a great advantage to have it in English too ... – Kurt Oct 13 '12 at 23:14

Have you tried rewriting the line as


and rerunning? From looking at the code of tablor it appears to use the fancyvrb package, wrapping the parameters in a verbatim environment. Since verbatim environments can't have text following their \begin declaration, this should cause your error.

I'm afraid I can't do the actual testing, since I, too, don't have XCAS.
