Way back in Maple 10 (I'd like to pay special attention to http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/43066-Maple-10-How-Do-I-Change-Number-Formats) it was suggested even hinted by a Maplesoft employee that this availability would be in a future version of Maple. 

Since then there have been numerous requests on how to get Maple to change to scientific or engineering notation of the sorts. 

So what is that now, v11 v12 v13 v14 v15 v16 v17 v18 v2015 v2016 ... 10 versions!  and no implementation of engineering / scientific notation conversions. 

We rely today on printf or sprintf for e notations however I could't come up with an output of converting 3530 to simply 3.53 x 103 .  Can someone produce a proc to do so, I have tried and I can not. 

A bit of an annoyance. 

typing 'numerator' / 'denominator' generates an error.  The first quote never gets automatically grouped as it should.

Two workarounds.  The first is to move to, and delete the first quote and re-enter it again in front of numerator.
The second is to use brackets, although one shouldn't have to.

I'm seeing older posts bubling to the top without any apparent changes.  Perhaps spam is being added to the ends of them and then being deleted is the only thing I can think of.

Funny, I can't seem to find a list of all available units in the help file.

Is there not a listed table of units somewhere?

**edit add**  conversion of units I mean.  ie.  meters, miles, gallons, litres, Pa, etc...

If a:=[1,4,2,6,8]  create all combinations of numbers with this list below 50
