We give expressions for all generalized polylogarithms up to weight four in terms of the functions log, Lin, and Li2;2, valid for arbitrary complex variables. Furthermore we provide algorithms for manipulation and numerical evaluation of Lin and Li2;2, and add codes in Mathematica and C++ implementing the results. With these results we calculate a number of previously unknown integrals, which we add in appendix C.
