I have been using Maple for many years and have created many Maple procedures for my own use in different projects. My usual practice is to place the procedures in a .txt file using WordPad or NotePad on my Windows machines. Then to load, for example, a file named C:\Users\Ed\Desktop\Top Quandles\Procedures.txt I use the command
Or I can leave the path off if the file is in the same folder as my worksheet.
This has always worked well for me. But have two questions:
1. Is there is a better way to save and load a bunch of procedures? Also I might mention that I frequently have to go into the file and change procedures or add new procedures, data, etc...
2. Recently I had occasion to send a worksheet and a txt file to a Mac user. We were not able to get the worksheet I sent him to read the .txt file on his Mac. Any suggestions on how to do that on a Mac? We tried putting them both in the same folder and just using a simple read("Procedures.txt"); command but the Mac didn't like that.
Any suggestions about either of these two issues would be appreciated.
