I would like to tell Maple to evaluate all numbers in an expression using floating point numbers (of a desired precision). Short example:

evalf[30](x^(1/12));

prints

x^(1/12)

while I want it to print 

x^(0.0833333333333333333333333333333)

Note that the real expression may be arbitrarily complicated. I know that it is possible easily because I have already seen this somewhere, but I don't remember it.
