Question:Problem with "if" and the ";" (mapple 14)

Question:Problem with "if" and the ";" (mapple 14)

Maple 14

Hello,

First of all I'm French so excuse my English.

I have some questions about Maple 14 on MacOSX,

1- I want to use the "proc()" fuction with an "if" fuction in the "proc()" but it's not workink, I tested many display with the "print" command to evaluate where is the problem and now I can say that the problem is in the "if" fuction. Here his my worksheet :

`> suite := proc (n) local u, k, i; u := n; k := 0; for i from 0 to 10 do print(irem(u, 2), evalb(irem(u, 2) = 0)); if evalb(irem*(u, 2) = 0) then u := (1/2)*u; print("on divise par 2") else u := 3*u+1; print("*3+1") end if; print(u); k := k+1 end do; return k end proc;print(`output redirected...`); # input placeholderproc(n)  ...  end;> suite(2);print(`output redirected...`); # input placeholder                            0, true                             "*3+1"                               7                            1, false                             "*3+1"                               22                            0, true                             "*3+1"                               67                            1, false                             "*3+1"                              202                            0, true                             "*3+1"                              607                            1, false                             "*3+1"                              1822                            0, true                             "*3+1"                              5467                            1, false                             "*3+1"                             16402                            0, true                             "*3+1"                             49207                            1, false                             "*3+1"                             147622                            0, true                             "*3+1"                             442867                               11`

`Have you got any idea ?`
`2- At school I use to work on Maple 7.5 or 9.5 (I don't really remember) on Windows, but at home I work on Maple 14 on MacOSX, and I want to know what are the differents between the two versions and why the ";" is useless in Maple 14.`
`3- I've heard that I can use the old interface/classic worksheet but I don't know how to do.`

`Thanks for helping.`
`Have a nice day.Ben `
