The exclaimation mark as far as i know can be viewed as an instruction to maple to begin communicating with the host operating system in some way. I attempted to open cmd.exe in windows 10 by entering
But was not successful in passing arguments with the intention they are to be interpreted by the command prompt as commands that should be executed once cmd.exe is open.
Another maple command, ssystem seems to accomodate all the basic purposes for opening a terminal of the host OS, but the examples only involve commands that will be understood by a linux terminal, not the windows command line. I have a number of linux virtual machines running on my windows system, would it be possible open a terminal in one of those from the maple installation on the host machine?
