Question: An example of "Connection to Kernel lost" issue.

Here is a simple example which generates a loss of the connection to the kernel.

A few words to help you understand what this simplified code is aimed to do.
The inputs are:

  • a matrix (10 by 2 in the example given above), 
  • a "slave" column p,
  • a "master" column q,
  • a list of rangesr.

Let nr the number of elements of r.
The goal is to separate the elements of M[.. ,p] in nr sorted lists L1, ..., Lnr according to the rule

  • M[n ,p] is in Lk  if M[n ,q] is in r[k]  

A notional example is given in the snippet code below.
The variable num contains nr lists, the kth one contains the values of such that M[n ,q] is in r[k] .

As soon as one element of num is empty list the line S := ... generates the Connection to Kernel lost message.

I have made sure that this no longer happens by coding more carefully.

However, since some recent posts have mentioned this type of connection loss (usually difficult to trace), I thought it might be useful to publish this example (a census of connection loss situations might help make Maple more robust)
